 You're right, the dialog displayed is not entirely true. However, the are-
 you-sure dialog (AYS) is being displayed for the very reason you mention
 and that is “users do not know about it”. In 4.7 there is no UI for
 regaining access to a given changeset, so the warning is displayed to
 prevent the user from losing access to their changes. The more fundamental
 problem for this dialog is that it is provided by the browser and we have
 no control over it, other than to ask the browser to warn the user. We
 cannot change the text of the dialog.

 The [https://wordpress.org/plugins/customize-snapshots/ Customize
 Snapshots] plugin (important: not yet compatible with 4.7) is prototyping
 the UI for explicitly creating a persistent Draft of a changeset and it
 also provides an edit posts admin screen that lists out all these drafted
 changesets. In this plugin, once a Draft is made the AYS dialog does not
 appear. For more on this in core, you can follow #31089.
