Playlists can be deleted just as easily as the play queue can be
cleared.  Creating a new playlist isn't very hard either.  Or, if you
really want to remove all the songs without deleting the playlist,
ctrl-a ctrl-x (select all, then cut).

There's no reason you can't use a playlist for the 'one-time playlist'
concept you keep talking about, and the only advantage you've mentioned
for using the play queue in this way is that it takes fewer mouse

Except that adding songs to the play queue is incredibly easy.  My use
case for RB is that I sit down with my fairly large library and want
to play a varied assortment of music, hardly ever the same playlist
from day to day.  I've bound Ctrl+T to "Add to Play Queue" so I select
a song/album and hit Ctrl+T.  Lather. Rinse. Repeat as necessary
(usually a lot).

Adding songs to a playlist is not even nearly as simple.  That's why
using Banshee, at least for me, is incredibly more awkward.
