Definitely. If you want it to be really secure, that would be the way to
go. However I'm not sure that is what the aim is.

Personally, I see this as a small measure to stop people accidentally
doing something you don't want - like deleting tracks etc. I don't think
we can, or even want to try to, offer "real security".

Before we start doing lots more work on this, we should probably figure
out what it will get used for, and what it needs to do.
