There was a brief discussion on the feedback page about being able to manipulate a just-created automatic citation in NWE, which didn't get a response (much less a summary) from the developers. T107078: When inserting a new automatic citation, offer "Edit" as well as "Insert" button was closed when there wasn't a NWE, and we've got three power users who would really like this functionality. T107078#2894278 mentions reconsidering this for NWE. So here's a task.
WAID and JDF also mentioned (in the discussion and the task linked above, respectively) that there was some data that said it's a bad idea. I'd like a URL to that data if it does exist.
