The recommended way to ask rsync to only delete files is to use the combination
of --existing and --ignore-existing together so that rsync is skipping all file
transfers and directory/symlink/device creations.

There's also the script I just mentioned on the mailing list that turns a list
of files into a set of includes & excludes that can be used in place of the
--files-from option.  The version from CVS is available here:
