Dial-back slider (for sliding between original and adjusted image)

A technique I've often heard advised and used myself to ensure you don't manage to overprocess an image without realising it is to dial back the adjustments you've just made once you've finished.

I thought a good way for Adobe to implement this in Lightroom would be a specific dial-back adjustment slider which affects all the tonal and colour adjustments (not sharpening, cropping etc, but does include tonal and colour adjustments within a brush or grad filter as well as the main ones), transitioning between the original image and the adjusted version (or perhaps a snapshot), allowing you to dial back everything you've done a little to see if you prefer it.

You could even go an extra step and allow dialback to be controlled by brushes and filters, if for example, you just want to dial back the adjustments you made in one part of the image.
