I have two AppleID accounts I use with iTunes. I want one only, and have only used one for several years. I'd like to close the other account. I don't want to change it. I don't want to merge it. I just want to freaking closing it. SHOULD be simple enough. But for the company who pioneered ease-of-use technology, I don't think they've quite extended that philosophy to something as darn simple as a user ID.

The account I wish to close has a purchase history consisting of nothing more than two paid singles/songs and five free iPhone Apps. I don't care about any of that stuff, and if I ever wanted it again, I'd simply repay for it on the new account.

I'm guessing Apple's over-complication of AppleID accounts will prohibit this, but is there any way to simply close an AppleID account? No changes, no merging, no nothing -- just closing the account and voiding whatever authorizations it was entitled to.
