 ok. I'll remove that for select fields .

 IMO submit button does need to be required for all kinds of text fields
 (i.e. raw &wiki textarea, raw and wiki text field ) . Consider the case
 when user starts typing but suddenly decides it's all wrong . Hence there
 should be a way to revert in place edits (e.g. Submit + Cancel button ?)

 I think our default approach should be to not ask for confirmation unless
 in cases of grave danger.

 ... and when there's a need to cancel / undo in place modifications , like
 is the case for text fields .
