in reply to Point of No Return (a.k.a. The Dangers of

This has been discussed before at least once. I seem to remember ( though cannot find ) the basic reason given was that we ( meaning the Monastery, not the secret cabal ) did not want somebody to get the root node approved and then modify it after the fact. This, it was thought, could lead to confusion and abuse.

I do like the idea of being able to modify it until it is approved though, as mentioned in the linked node above. I wonder if Fearless Leader could implement that.
