Interesting opinion but not an argument. Standard means that people using 
systems develop habits and automatisms. When a software does not follow the 
standards, then those habits get in the way and produces mishaps. I lost 
works because I forgot to save before quiting. My old habits kikked in even 
though I was aware. That sort of software behavior have become standards for 
good reasons.

Sometimes, I just want to quit and not save.
