The question of when to ask for confirmation, and how, is an important
one, but it isn't the same one.  In Emacs, the reason we have
both y-or-n-p and yes-or-no-p is partly to address this.

I know it is off-topic, but could you elaborate on this one (or is it
maybe in the
manual... I'll have a look)?
Do you refer to the fact that you have to type the more "difficult"
string "yes" + enter,
instead of just typing "y"? In my case I often do arrow-up + enter, because in
99 cases of 100, the last response I made was "yes", so it does not
really make it
much harder for me to do something wrong (because I am forming a habit).
