Help me to solve this enigma, the GNOME support or not the Trash Spec?
In which version?
I understand that there is a protocol implementation of trash:/ but it seems
that is not yet used by nautilus.

Ideally I would prefer an implementation that uses the Windows Recycle Bin
data structure in a NTFS, or FAT partitions.
But I don't know if there is a publicly specification of these data
structures and how it could be easy find and implement them (the ReactOs has
a Recicle Bin?).
