I love the new edit system. Even if I don't have enough reputation to perform immediate edits, I can now edit questions and answers to improve their grammar, spelling and structure, and one of the moderators can approve my edits.
Recently I've had a number of "edit clashes", i.e., while I'm editing a question, someone else edited the same question, made mostly the same modifications, and had their edit approved (or has 2000+ reputation).
In order not to give the moderators extra work sorting through proposed edits (and not to make myself look silly for proposing "very minor" changes), it would be nice to get a warning close to the Submit button that someone else has edited a question/answer at the same time and to be able to drop my edit from the queue.
Are there any plans to implement such a thing?
Edit: Since this feature is (sort of) implemented1, I would like to change this into a request to have the notification displayed closer to the Submit button, and to have the option the scrap an edit.
1) I overlooked the feature since I simply missed the notification bar at the top of the screen:
