The daemon can only really be expected to delete files that it adds itself, i.e. the torrents in the watchdir. A potential solution would be to add a delete argument, e.g. '--delete', to transmission-remote which would attempt to delete a torrent if it is added successfully.

I agree.

There's a similar issue with adding torrents via the DBUS architecture.
