Well, I must say that this must by bone by rsync.
That's because I'm creating small automation system,
part of it is rsync-based.
Yes, I can write "rm -r dirB/dir2", but this will break consitency
of the whole system and removes some features that I need.

I do need to delete dirs and files by rsync filter.
