[ardour-dev] General Session and saving question

I'm unclear on things that can be done in a session that get lost
without saving and things that are permanent wether the session is saved
As I use Ardour more and more, I become more comfortable doing things
that at one time I would have been afraid to do for various reasons. A
good example is playlist manipulation. After being schooled thoroughly
on playlist concepts (thanks las!) I now won't hesitate to make a copy
of a playsit and chop it little bittie pieces, with no concern of doing
any permanent damage to the audio files.
One area I'm still weary in are things that would, for example, get lost
in a crash, or things that would be permanent even if the session
wasn't saved, etc.
A few examples:
I think it's safe to say that any cutting/pasting in the editor would be
lost if the session isnt saved.
Adding a track for example would be lost unless some recording was done,
then even if not saved it would still be there? Is this true?
I guess I'm asking for a rundown of things that are permanent vs things
that would be lost without saving, if there is such a simple list. I
find answers to some of these questions myself by trial and error, but
sometimes the conclusions I come to arent actually true.
