Lightroom CC: "Trash" Functionality

It seems less than optimal for deletion of photos in Lightroom CC to permanently remove the photos from all locations, especially in the event of accidental deletion.

It would be great to have some sort of "Trash" functionality for deleted images (that could be cleared regularly as a policy) or even send deleted images to the native trash on any desktop machines connected to the cloud account.

Greetings All,

Effective with the release today, the first stage of a Deleted Item recovery is available to the Lightroom Ecosystem. Logging into Lightroom Web at http://lightroom.adobe.com will reveal a Deleted Icon beneath All Photos. Items deleted in any of the Lightroom clients (Desktop, Web or Mobile) should appear in this area for evaluation, recovery or permanent deletion. 

Note that this is the first step in a more robust implementation and there will be more to come.
