It's an extra letter, but it's a completely incomprehensible extra
choice for the users.  I know that when I'm using something, I don't
want to be faced with options that I have no possible interest in.

The normal reaction to such a prompt is "oh, should I edit this?  How
should I edit this?  Do I need to edit this?"
