I agree. But if you unintentionally make a change - such as bumping a footprint by 1 pixel when you try to select it - your preferred action is to close the file without saving, retaining its original content, and discarding everything attributable to your clumsiness, inattentiveness, etc.
And are there UI actions that KiCAD flags as a “change” even though no actual change occurred? I’m thinking of something like opening an object’s “Properties” dialog (perhaps to verify an object’s size, or location) - does KiCAD mark that as a change just because you opened the dialog, with all of its editable fields, whether or not you actually modified any of the fields? If so, you’ll see the “Save Changes?” dialog, and be puzzled because you don’t recall making any changes.
