Easier and more error proof pricelist configuration

It seems to me that at the moment pricelist configuration in Odoo is
really uncomfortable and "naive".
You have to open a pricelist, open a version, open the rule of the
pricelist version and edit that. As soon as you save, the edited
pricelist is automatically considered valid and active, even in the
ecommerce. That means that if the user has made an error it goes live
immediately, there is no an intermediate "approval" step.

This situation is worsened by the fact that there is not a good way to
see a preview of the prices of a pricelist or the differences between
two pricelist versions or rules.

Do you know of any module/patch/configuration/practice to make
pricelist creation and editing more comfortable, easy and error proof?
(especially with an ecommerce where saving a wrong pricelist means
public users can immediately start buying with "wrong" prices)

Also, given that I'm probably going to develop something in this area,
do you have any implementation ideas/suggestions to share?
