Of course, the descent velocity should be user configurable (if 10m/min suits you better use that value by all means).

Actually, that's what I wanted. My code does add two nodes to the dive plan, I should have added the second node to the graph as well.
What about having one of the two behaviors on double clicking with a modifier key (shift say) and the other as default?

Indeed. One would have to figure out what is implied by moving a node around. I only to precautions not to have time travel dive plans.
