Other than the difficulty in reverting, are there any other downsides?
If changing most of my folders to Queue type solves the re-edit issue
with no other side effects, that would be awesome for me...  

I never stopped to think about the reason for folder type...  so setting
a/some folder(s) to type Trash would allow emptying on File->Empty all
Trash folders...  interesting...  now I finally understand another CM
subtlety...  :)
