I've tested this shortly after 5.0.4 launched by deleting my former main to see if I lost anything. You'll keep them all. :P
Not entirely sure, though, since I never even thought of deleting a character with an independant achievement before.
but I know that if you delete a toon which got a cool mount, you'll lose the mount too
You'll only lose the mount if it's a character-specific mount. If it's an account-wide mount, you'll keep the mount as it's tied to the battle.net account, not the character.

No, not true! I wanted to delete the toon I scored the Green Proto drake on. I asked the forums and no one knew; it was early in shared mounts (I stumped the forums ya me). I then put in a ticket and talked with a GM and he told me once you learn a mount, you learn it forever. I then deleted my Hunter that earned the Green Proto drake and I still had the mount account wide, Alliance and Horde.
