IMHO it would make sense to make two "delete" options then:
It would only touch the target if it is not in use.
ALL would delete all targets which are not in use; the targets which have initiators connected would not have its state changed (some informational message would be displayed to the user).
It would delete the targets irrespectively of their use.
