The semantic used by countless applications and which is an extremely well
established UX pattern is:

- First "Save" -> Open Save As dialog
- Subsequent "Save" -> overwrite previous location
- Any "Save As" -> Always opens a Save As dialog

Lacking this is not a dealbreaker, but it unpleasantly departs from known
functionality and makes things that little more inconvenient for the user
and keeps reminding him he's using a webapp.
