Why not have a currently-unused-for-macros key - #, say - so that #b in an inscription means "confirm spell b"? Apologies if that was assumed.

When you are about to die if you don't escape, you can be extra careful about which key you press. In addition, if you are not playing a pure caster with 0% fail, you should be using a scroll instead of casting from a book when you really need an escape.

OK, how does this sound:

A {#b} (or whatever) on a spellbook inscription causes a prompt like "Do you really want to cast Detect Monster" (or whatever)

A {#p}/{#m} will force the prompt for all spells (as opposed to !p/!m, which prompts at book selection time) (I assume m is far enough down the alphabet to be safe, but still have a bad feeling about this one...)

Hitting # before selecting a book will also force the prompt for that cast only, so you have an "if I get the wrong spell here I am toast" option.

Implementing one of the latter two would probably be sufficient- both may be overkill...
