Delete components from a Released package Spring '14

I'm trying to test the new feature of Spring '14 , where we are allowed to delete components from a manage package ( delete more than before! ) .
In my development organization I created a simple small package that has 1 custom object ( with 2 custom fields) and 1 cusmtom label. Released to managed release version. After that, try to delete one of the fields, or the label or even the custom object is not possible. However the documentation is telling me the opposite.. might be I'm doing something wrong... any ideas are welcome! :)

Thanks a lot!

Some info:
I was having a look to the parts:
Deleting Components in Managed Packages , Protected Components ( my custom label is protected) (

---- from the guide ---
You can delete the following types of components when updating a previously released managed package in a development
• Custom Buttons or Links
• Custom Fields
• Custom Objects
• Custom Tabs
• Field Sets
• Record Types
• Validation Rules
The Spring 14 release notes seem to suggest that this is a feature for ISVs - e.g. those that have released the managed package to the app exchange after the security review etc - the section is:

and the key text is:

This feature is available to eligible partners. For more information on the Partner Program, including eligibility requirements, please visit

I'll be interested to hear if this can be done for non-ISV packages, as I have a bunch that I use internally and I'd like to get rid of some of the tabs.

Seems like at the moment it is not possible to do with non-ISV package, at least no with the one that I have :( 
I've check the other orgs that we have, but as only NA1 is in Spring 14 we don't have yet any package org with Spring '14 ( where sec review and all is done) . Then I'll need to wait little bit more to test if it is possible to do it in the  ISV packages.

After long time waiting for this feature... It is working!! However it is necessary to be requested to Salesforce. 

Like bob_buzzard said this feature seems availiable to eligible partners. In order to use it , it needs to be requested. Don't do the same mistake as me .. I was expecting to have it enable by default. To risky :)
