The point is that the modeline tells you all the little stuff.  The
most important thing, the fact that this buffer will go bye bye
without a trace is not mentioned there!

No, the point is that many of us have actually been using Emacs for 20
years and not found it wanting in this regard, and those who want such a
reminder displayed can simply customize the mode-line-format variable.
