Hard delete not sufficiently delivered

RFE 115122 (Hard delete) is marked as delivered, however what has been delivered only gives us the access to the data, but not expertise on the database, which IBM have always advised us to avoid making changes on it. It does not give us the capability to hard delete data, only some of the tools.
In order to delete this data, each customer will have an expensive and non-standard overhead to develop a front end / linkages for the hard delete process.
We are concerned about the quality of the audit trail, and the ability for business owners to be certain of EXACTLY what will and will not be deleted.

A colleague supports an Archer system, and has confirmed that they have hard delete integrated into front end of the base delivery, allowing users to request a hard delete, with an approval process included to commit the change. This is the type of delivery we had expected.
