I think the expectation of most computer users is that trash grows<br>rancid after a while and probably should just "go away" eventually.</blockquote><div>No.
You just described users who doesn't use the trash. For them it is
possible to enable "bypass trash" in nautilus. But why ruin
expectations of reliable trash for those, who actually use it?<br>

<br>holding area for pending files, call it something else... I don't know "Limbo"<br>"Twilight Zone", "Bermuda Triangle" "Cryolab"... Someplace that you expect<br>things to come back from. ;-)
you don't expect things to come back from it, why do you use it?
However the name is misleading. In windows it's called recycle bin, a
much better name in my opinion.<br>
By the way, shouldn't trash be in places menu/nautilus's main toolbar
too? If it's removed from panel it is only accesable from nautilus >
go > trash. It would really improve usability of spatial mode for
those, who removed trash applet from panel.<br>
