[chandler-users] [d/f] Deleting collections only vs. collections

I think the issues is that since the items are not in any collection
(not even the Dashboard), there will be no way to access them once
the collection they are in is gone.
However, there does seem to be a bug, since if you add an item in
your not-in-Dashboard collection to another collection, that item
will remain after you delete the not-in-Dashboard collection, despite
the warning dialog. The dialog should be checking for items in other
collections and changing the wording, perhaps to "Deleting <x> will
move some items that are only in <x> to the Trash".
I've filed Bug 9511:
Feel free to add any more comments to that bug.
