 From the dev list:

 Confirmation pages and dialogues are generally poor at achieving their
 goal. There seems to be a general habit of ignoring / skipping through
 these by just selecting OK or similar. Never mind situations in which
 the user is certain that the action is justified, but learns later
 that is wasn't.

 For those reasons I believe we should always prefer making it easy to
 reverse an action over asking whether it was actually intended.

 Gary replied:
 Creation of some major objects are likely to remain irreversible
 (tickets being the obvious example) but object creation is at least not
 as much as a problem as object deletion. I think we could probably
 look into providing a means to mark deletable objects as deleted,
 rather than actually removing them from the database, to support this
 kind of behaviour. That and any extension to versioning we might need.

 This ticket is to discuss this further an to spawn tickets that enable
 this behaviour.
