You're the second person to request that in as many weeks.
I agree that it would be useful and plan to add it to GNU rm.
I've just added to the TODO file.

However, there will be at least one bug-fix-only release
before adding new features.

FYI, to those reading the list, here's the description:

   -I    Request confirmation once if more than three files are being
         removed or if a directory is being recursively removed.  This
         is a far less intrusive option than -i yet provides almost
         the same level of protection against mistakes.
