Hi Randy,
As defined, "delete" (like "show") is an operation on atoms/bonds,  
not the surface, which is a separate model.  "~surf" can hide part or  
all of surfaces.  You can get rid of a surface as a whole by choosing  
it in the left side of the Model Panel and clicking the "close"  
button on the right (not the Close button for the Model Panel!).

I've described the current process rather than providing an answer to  
your question, which is more about design and data structures.  We  
are planning changes to how surfaces are handled, including (I  
believe) allowing them to be selected, but I must leave it to the  
others who are/will be doing this work to provide any further details  
or the estimated time frame.  I doubt there will be piecewise  
deletion as opposed to our current pattern of allowing partial hiding/ 
showing and deleting a surface as a whole.
