      Description

      Edits pending can be cancelled by original editor, effective immediately. Edits adding entities/relationships are usually automatically applied, but then cannot be cancelled. Often needed there is a window for typo correction on names/titles, but not for undoing the non-destructive edit itself. I want that button.

      Example: On a release just added [Rihm:] Morphonie / Klangbeschreibung I–III, the orchestra performs on every track except 2.1 , so was added with relationship editor having all tracks marked. (Not many tracks on it: Not the worst example, but the latest.) I forgot to cross them out for that track before saving, so an incorrect AR is now set as automatically applied. I cannot cancel this “typo”, must instead go for removal, a destructing edit therefore pending, thereby clogging dependant edits (“X has changed so Y will fail”) and subscriptions.

      It would be nice for original editor to have an “Undo” button for 1 day/week.
