Wouldn't this encourage people to click 'Train' without actually
checking that the classification is correct?

(Having the "save" button at the top (and bottom) of the config, page,
however, would be good).

The default is to have messages selected as their existing
classification.  Most of the time this should be right, so makes sense
as the default.  If you want to change them all to 'defer', this only
takes a single click (on the 'defer' heading).

An option to only review unsures is an interesting idea.  If we had more
data about which training regeme produces the best results, and training
on unsures only did well, then this would definitely be a good idea.  As
it is, I wonder if it would just make things more complicated,
unnecessarily.  You can open a feature request if you really want it,
and people can debate the idea.  (Note that it won't get added until the
end of the feature freeze, in any case).
