They cannot be deleted in this release of Gnome. In the next one I believe that is will be possible to hide them.

If they annoy you, just switch off nautilus desktop rendering entirely (then you won't have any icons at all though on the desktop). You can find the setting in GConf.

Thanks! That helped. Didn't want any icons at all to start with!
