The Imbalance-xxx account will reappear the next time an error is made in
balancing a transaction, or if a transaction is intentionally left out of
balance to be fixed later, so it is useless to delete the account.
I agree with David T that new entries should go to the existing account,
even if it is not in the default position in the CoA.
