I agree - WRI seem to have a blind spot about UNDO - nowadays, people 
just expect a multi-level UNDO as part of working on a computer.

Notebooks are not quite like other documents, because they change 
programatically as well as by user editing, but I would not have thought 
it would be too hard to provide a multi-level UNDO that would at least 
operate between evaluations. Alternatively, UNDO could be restricted to 
cells of particular styles - ignoring output cells.
