The only warning any of my installed apps show on quitting is if there 
is unsaved data. None try to confirm a basic quit action by itself, and 
I think I'd find it irritating if they did.

The one exception I can think of is for children's software, where 
children may experiment with menus or try to see what a Quit button on 
screen will do.
