Anatol - I'm not sure where you're seeing that you can remove a document from a "Recent Documents" web part. The only way I've found is to open a bunch of documents to push an offending one off the list.
And this is an issue because someone might be working on an investigation with a document named "Anatol Investigation", then starts up SharePoint for a presentation, hits the Search or a Recent Documents web part and everyone in the presentation knows about the investigation. MAJOR breach of privacy and confidentiality, even if the document itself is not displayed.
