Yes, I find myself doing exactly this. However, it is often the case that I 
want to edit the notes for tasks to say why I'm postponing them, etc., which 
is easier on the desktop.

The exact proposal is to put a radio button in the Preferences indicating 
whether to prompt the user for confirmations on record modifications. If I'm 
right, the user can have a similar experience on the desktop as with the Palm 
OS in this regard.
