Allow "Clear" text on items with no text

We like to clear the text of songs before and after the band begins to sing.  That means we want the song items to be clear of text when selected.  Unfortunately, if the item before the song has no text we can't enter the song with text cleared.  In addition, if the item after the song has a transition (theme shown with text sliding into place) either the text does not appear, or it appears in place without the transition, the song can't be cleared, or the song is cleared and then uncleared (a slow blink).

Our work-around is to add a blank slide (text overlay with no text) to the beginning and ending of all songs.  This, eliminates the need for "Clear".

Is there a reason to disallow an action that will have no effect on the current item but will properly effect the next?
