Here's a typical scenario where "undo" and/or (semi-)automatic backup 
from within Mathematica would be useful -- one that just happened to me 
and has happened before:

I deleted a cell, or at least that's what I thought I was doing. But 
actually I accidentally selected an entire group containing that cell 
and, whoosh, the whole group was gone.
