Use Case: There are numerous valid use cases where a confirmation message pop-up is useful even when not submitting a form. Case in point, we are currently able to do this using the ButtonWidget component(s) even when not configured to submit.
I look forward to hearing from anyone else who might agree with this, and/or if anyone has any further comments or questions.

Even I have a use case in my current project which a "confirmation message upon click of a link" would sort out. I say this is much needed. Thanks Mike for requesting this feature!
I agree - I even came up with a new use case a few weeks ago: a paging grid with many pages and user selections; i like to have a dynamic link which the user can click to clear all selections, but there is no way to have a confirmation pop-up to keep them from clicking it by accident (as i would be able to do with a non-submitting button).
Hey I can tack something on right there. Let's say you're doing a paging grid with multiple pages of selections, and you make dozens of selections then click something to perform an operation on each of them.
There's no way to conveniently display all the items that have been selected, but a confirmation box could show all your selections and confirm you want to perform said operation on all of them. You might have fat fingered one on the first page you didn't intend; you could cancel, deselect that one, then run it again.
