Why not make it a radio submenu? Just an idea...

My idea was that a new user who just hits `Delete', expecting it to do something, may not notice the menu item--but if it's initially bound to `Delete', it's activated the first time `Delete' is pressed. I don't believe a submenu can be bound to a key--and it couldn't offer the explanation, either:

   Balsa has no default action when you press the `Delete' key.
   You can choose to have it:
   [ ] move selected messages to trash;
   [x] toggle the deleted flag for selected messages;
   [ ] do nothing.

Why would one like to have Delete key unbound? Seems unlikely to me - probably because I have this KISS principle written on a yellow note that got stuck to my screen.

Just for completeness, I guess !-)
