If one makes changes to a draft and then attempts to navigate away from it without hitting "Save Draft," a window pops up to ask if one is sure one wants to navigate away from the page without saving the changes.
Likewise, there should be a pop-up window "Are you sure you want to publish?" every time one hits the Publish button, as a safeguard against premature publishing. Although, upon publishing by mistake, one can set the status back to Draft again, the problem is that there is no way to recall a mistakenly published draft that has gone out via RSS, which, alas, happens instantly upon hitting Publish.
As an alternative, could anybody tell me which of the core files contains the code for the Publish button so I can at least make it as tiny and inconspicuous as possible rather than it being this huge blue monster that screams "CLICK ME!!!" at my subconscious mind every time I actually just want to save my draft?
