So an option which replaces the expression "Album" with "Folder" would 
solve the whole problem by making it clear to the user that deleting 
"Folder" will sends his collection to the orcus;-)

BTW In digikam's handbook, in "Album View", you will find:
"Deleting an Album  When you delete an Album from digiKam it will be 
moved into the KDE Trash Can. ..."
