this is the reason why you need to click first to "Edit" and then to "Delete" (and why there is a space between "Cancel" and "Delete" buttons).

I don't think that "session" based undelete is the right way to implement it (if something is implemented, it must work in general, not only for a "session"). More interesting is to have something like "mark for deletion" with a timer (e.g. delete after 24 hour) - the only problem is that it requires server support (and I don't know if there is any "undelete" support in Cal/CardDAVrelated RFCs).

Multiple copies of one contact creates more problems than it solves. What if the contact is changed? Will you update it in all addressbooks? The good solution here is to share the contact using shared addressbooks, and set proper permissions for these addressbooks. This doesn't mean that I say no for copy functionality, but there are lot of other (much more important) things I want to add/change.
