> Users are asking for permanent data deletion that cannot be recovered.

If the binary log is enabled, eg for replication, deletions can be recovered by restoring from a backup then replaying the binary log.

Restoring from a previous backup will restore deleted data. The only way round that is to destroy the backups ... then of course crash recovery will be impossible.

Users who want their data to disappear forever need not to put such data in a database that depends on logs and backups for data integrity.
