Edit: Never mind -dumb question. I figured out using 'cut' instead of 'move'. Don't like it but get the job done.
A lot of people are initially put off by cut/copy strategy, especially if they've never used it on their desktop PC's. I think this is largely because most people like to simply drag-and-drop.
As far as effort is concerned, it's roughly the same for basic operations:
1.) Select files
2.) Tap Cut or Copy
3.) Navigate to new destination
4.) Tap Clipbaord
5.) Tap Paste
Immediate Move/Copy Strategy:
1.) Select Files
2.) Tap Immediate Move / Immediate Copy Button
3.) Dialog appears showing possible new destinations
4.) Navigate to new destination
5.) Tap Ok
The major reason why FX has gone exclusively with the cut/copy strategy is that the "Navigate to new destination" step sometimes involves creating a new folder, a good amount of browsing, searching (currently not available in released versions of FX, but on its way), or other operations.
