Well, yeah, this requires a measure of practice and estimation. But to activate it, you need to consciously throw the switch, it’s not like it’s implicit or context sensitive. Other tools such as Bisect and Knife carry similar risks. This will probably mostly be used in ortho views. I imagine displaying the switch on the topbar in an angry red when on would help if someone forgets, but we’re getting into bikeshedding here.
And with this you only have to undo if you make a mistake, whereas display-mode switching was something you had to do no matter what, so as long as you succeed most of the time, that’s less clicking anyway
