The new field "+" button in table view is dangerous

Is there any way to disable the new field "+" button that appears at the far right of the field name header line in table view? I have a very large and complex hosted database and can't make structural changes to it while the file is hosted and users connected without potentially hanging the server. With any other structural change (under File > Manage database) there is a two step process with a confirmation required before changes are committed but with the "+" button a field is immediately created in the table without any prompting. Already a couple of times I have inadvertently hit this button while trying to widen a column, and hung the server, forcing me to kick all my users and restart FMS.
