Option to Delete photos after export

Why are photos deselected immediately after export? Usually once exported from Lightroom I’m ready to delete them. I can see that it can be a safety feature so someone doesn’t lose photos- but I hate having to reselect the photos (as they’re not always side by side) and figure out which I exported and which I didn’t. Why not keep them selected until deselected?

The idea is that you do not delete photos from Lightroom. Lightroom holds the original. If you export a photo, you export it for a certain purpose. After you have used it for that purpose, you delete the exported photo, not the original in Lightroom.

Thanks. I understand but for mobile photography I don’t find the originals precious enough to hold and storage space becomes an issue after a time.
