nothing is bad about using shift.
but the question is, how pd should behave if your are NOT using shift, 
but click on the small X in the pd console window title bar (or a patch) 
that usually closes a patch or program without confirmation. (unless you 
haven't changed the document.)
new users may want to close the console window not realizing that this 
closes pd itself.
speaking for me, I find this confirmation really annoying. do I really 
find this annoying every single time! YES!
