To be pedantic that command will reset the referenced key to it's 
default value not take out the key. And that's exactly what "Set to 
default" does as well.

The gnome folks chose to call it "reset" rather than "delete" because 
dconf will always have a value for any given key. If not one set by the 
user (or if reset by the user) it will fall back to the default value 
which is always there as its hard-wired in the configuration.
