"Fake erase" feature

I think there should be a feature that lets you erase a picture without it really erasing. What I mean by this is that it will display the "erase?" screen, but even if you say yes, it won't erase. That way, if somebody tells you to erase a picture they don't want you to have, you can make them think you erased it, but you'd still have it. Maybe it can then emulate a press of the "left" key, so it will display the photo before it as if it really was erased. If you really want it to be realistic, you can have it not appear there until you restart the camera. You can make it one of the Alt- "debug" actions, as is usually the erase key.

Just move/copy it to another folder and show it's gone/being erased.

Take raw.
When deleting the jpg, the raw file stays, alteast it did the last time I checked.

And this also gives you the nice quality of raw.

This actually depends on the camera, the selected name and extension, and whether you have rebooted since taking the raw :)
Don't forget what the H stands for.
