[SPIKE] Decide what abandon changes dialogs are shown in what contexts
Open, Needs TriagePublic


T299270 caused the Editing Team to start thinking about when the browser's Leave site? dialog is shown [i], when VE's Are you sure? dialog is shown [ii], and how each dialog behaves in each of these moments it appears within.

This task takes this line of inquiry a step further and asks us to express an opinion about whether any changes ought to be made to how these two dialogs currently behave in order to ensure people have an accurate understanding of when the changes they've made will be saved and when they will not be saved.
