I don't want to split hairs but I think this is a usability bug rather than a feature request. To have consistent behavior (e.g. with deleting a layer from the layer list) there should be a confirmation dialog, particularly since the action cannot be undone.

We really need an undo for this kind of thing but a dialog will do for now.
