You know that the setting is a per-host setting?  you can enable it on 
the remote backend only, and as long as you don't enable:

Master Backend Override
If enabled, the master backend will stream and delete files if it finds 
them in the video directory. Useful if you are using a central storage 
location, like a NFS share, and your slave backend isn't running.

it will delete things correctly.
