No way to cancel once you start editing a post?

In 2.6 Beta 2, it looks like if I go to the Post Edit Screen and start typing, pretty soon it will auto-save. So far, so good.

But if I decide I want to abandon this post, there doesn't seem to be any way to cancel without having this post saved behind the scenes. If the auto-save is going to become permanent without me having to click "save" or "publish" at least once, then there needs to be a "cancel" button, to allow me to abandon what I was doing. If I click through to another page, I litter my back end with abandoned drafts. I have to go to the Manage Posts screen, check off these abandoned drafts, and delete them.

I just tested in 2.5 and it looks like that was the behavior there too.
