(Side note: There's a discussion about changing the buttons for 
drafts at http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PITS/00755 .)

Yes, the buttons can be reversed -- just edit the Site.EditForm
page on your site and swap the order of the buttons.  

There can also be an 'are you sure' box -- just add the markup:

    (:input checkbox name='confirm':) Confirm save

into Site.EditForm, and then in local/config.php do:

    if ($action == 'edit' && @$_POST['post'] && !@$_POST['confirm']) {
      $MessagesFmt[] = "Save requires confirmation";
      $EnablePost = 0;

This will require the 'confirm' checkbox to be checked before
allowing a post.
