What I meant by deferred is that objects don't become candidates for
eviction right away, so when storage runs low you may LRU-nuke objects
still alive instead of banned objects that haven't been processed yet
(lurk-able or not).

I think, but like I said I'm no expert in this area.

Good point, and to clarify xkey operates on objects like bans, so not
all variants may be xkey-purged at once.
