Re: Request for Review and Comment: Confirm Important Information (Issue #33)

This seems to add a lot of burden to expert users on systems. For 
example, when I am doing DB development work (which I'm doing quite  lot 
at the moment) in a system I do not want every transaction I do to be 
confirmed. This would slow down development work and be really frustrating.

Most of these systems will ask to confirm drop or truncate operations 
but will not ask to confirm simple updates or inserts. To be honest if 
they did it would reduce the effect of them asking for confirmations of 
truly catastrophic operations. This meets WCAG today as you can simply 
change or delete the data to undo the operation if required - but it 
would not meet this new standard.

Regards,
James
