I think red for delete is the correct color.

Red definitely isn't associated to "error" only.

- XP, and Vista use red for the close button on each window.
- Firefox uses it for closing tabs. (cross platform)
- Internet Explorer and Firefox using a red cross to stop loading a page.
- Thunderbird uses a red cross for deleting addresses or mail
- Evolution has red buttons for stop/cancel (which is not an error 

I agree  there are apps that use other colors for delete (some also use 
other symbols: trash can instead of minus).
IMHO that shouldn't say that either side is right or defining a standard.
