Yes, and I believe this is a strong argument. :)
For example many people used to 'tapping' on their notebooks but I paranoidly 
disable it because this horrible feature backfire when used accidentally. 
Although lynx-like motion is not nearly that dangerous they are pretty much in 
the same camp to me - may be very useful until one day wrong folder is deleted 
and all the time saved by the feature multiplied by 10 or 100 must be spent 
for undoing the damage. Such mistakes are not uncommon when people in hurry 
and that's why I have concerns regarding safety of this feature. 

But never mind, I'm just being paranoid. :)

Also this is just my first, surface-level impression which may be wrong.

Oh yes, could be. :) I'm sure I can learn many things from you and I'm happy 
to have such opportunity. :)
