I just edited a question and then rejected my edits by clicking "Cancel". Then a pop-up comes up that asks for confirmation of my cancellation.
Is that really needed?

Yes the prompt would be needed. It won't allow you to cancel the work immediately if you accidentally clicked on the cancel button.
