But no harm is done if you move into the prompt.  Just move out of it again.
Once you noticed that you can move into the prompt, you know you can.
No docs to read to find it out.
Thanks for your view, but maybe there is a misunderstanding.

I was trying to see this from a beginners point of view. I do not believe a beginner would think the current behaviour is the least disturbing option. I think that new users should be distracted as little as possible since it is much to learn in the beginning.

So the real problem I am trying to help with is how to make it easier for new users to start to use Emacs.
