When using the tags datatype it's really easy to delete a tag by accident since clicking on it will make it disappear - That can be a frustrating experience for an editor even though it of course will not be deleted untill they hit the "Save" or "Save and publish" button.

But since we have the nice umbConfirmAction directive I suggest that we make use of this when deleting tags too. This will also make the UX more predictable and recognizable if we do this by convention everytime it's possible to delete something.

I also consider this a first step in the progress of making it possible to edit tags so this issue relates to http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-11498 as well. So it's preparing the UI for this option. If we can figure out a way to actually do this of course but if not the UX improvement is still worth it I think.
