Market order cancelling

Just after reading Rich's promise to allow retraction of mistaken
'sell's, I thought it was a good and necessary chance.

Now I've thought about it, and I'm not so sure. It's sort of changing
the state of the game in between turns.

If I have a noble at the head of the stack in a location, and something
shows up on my report as 'for sale', and I plan my turn on the assumption
that I'll buy it, I won't be happy if it magically goes away. It would
mean that we can have trades shown on the market report that no-one
ever has the chance to buy - I don't like that idea at all.

There are many instances in the game of mistakes which are non-correctable.
Would this one be better retained?
