That's good practice, yes.

I'd wish I could rely on my *staff* to be as diligent as
you yourself are...  ;-)

If the system provides "not asked" and various other
(discussable) states of non-knowledge things are better and
faulty data entirely becomes pilot error. If the system does
not it becomes *system-facilitated* user error and *that's*
where it starts being better not to record faulty things in
the first place.
