spatialite: deleting columns is not allowed

Is the spatialite provider supposed to allow deleting columns in the table of attributes? If yes then in QGIS (tested with trunk) this is not possible. If the answer is no, then please forgive me and close the ticket.

Sorry, deleting a column isn't allowed at all in SQLite.
You can add columns to any table after initial CREATE: but changing an already defined column is forbidden anyway.
Accordingly to this, renaming (or deleting) a column is not possible in SQLite/SpatiaLite.
