Wrong list for feature requests, but maybe you want to implement the following? :)
I would say it's up to the caller (are you talking about konqueror?) to use 
KFileItem::mostLocalURL or KIO::NetAccess::mostLocalURL to transform media:/foo 
and system:/bar into local paths before calling kio_trash. Not all "class local" kioslaves
can have their URLs resolved to local paths, IIRC, so this can only be done
for those where mostLocalURL works.
