I like this idea.

If the error is bad enough - here is what I find faster/better:
Delete the last QSO with ALT-Y
Do a CTL-R to recall the last callsign.
Relog the QSO - on CW you can enter the info using CTL-ENTER
so that the CW is not sent.
Of course in the SS - it is hard to recall all the info - so the
the other thing that I do is:
Log the QSO again correctly - and then go into
the edit window and do a CTL-Y to delete the
incorrect QSO line.
