Default Permission to delete your own, completely new submitted data

It's clear why a regular user can't delete data submitted by other people (tracklists, covers, artist images etc.), but regular user can't delete his/her own, completely new (not edited) data... Can that be changed?
I'll give some of my errors to ilustrate this:
Submitted a new tracklist, but realized I forgot few entries (say, I've put 15 tracks, but there were 18). So, the only way to correct this is to make a new tracklist (because new tracks can't be added to an existing tracklist, at least I haven't found a way). But that also leaves the matter of deleting the old, incomplete list, which I couldn't do.
Or when I (today) uploaded two almost identical artist images, and couldn't delete the unnecessary duplicate.

I mean, I don't know a thing about programming, databases and all that, but is it possible to adjust the delete function for cases like these?

I wanted to give users this ability for some small window of time after they submitted, maybe a couple of hours. We just never really had time to work on that one.

For now, if you rename the erroneous tracklist something like "delete", then staff will know to delete it.

I see. The time window is reasonable too.
It would be nice to add it eventually, whenever that will be, very useful function altogether. Better to remove your own errors than to make additional job for others. Sure it's best not to make errors, but yeah...
Thanks!

No progress on this. The tracklist code needs a few other improvements too, including the ability to add or remove tracks. Maybe this could be the next stuff I work on after finishing up products, but that still means it's pretty far away.
