As oppose with this solution, I don't wan't to mess-up with core javascript. What's the best workaround to customize javascript functionalities specifically on admin and this script dataobject_manager/javascript/dataobject_manager.js ?

After couple of hours solving the scenario, I was able to find a solution. Though it's kinda ugly combining prototype js and jquery co'z jQuery.ajax wasn't executing within Behaviour.register. See code below.

// Customize admin comment delete behavior
   // Added delete confirmation
   // @see dataobject_manager/javascript/dataobject_manager.js
      '#Form_EditForm_Comments a.delete-link': {
         initialize: function() {
            jQuery(this).unbind('click'); //unbind default behavior
         onclick : function(event) {
            // Now show up confirmation message
            deleteIt = confirm('Are you sure you want to delete this comment?');
            if( deleteIt ) {
               target = jQuery(this);
               params = $('SecurityID') ? {'forceajax' : '1', 'SecurityID' : $('SecurityID').value} : {'forceajax' : '1'};

               var options = {
                  method: 'post',
                  parameters : params,
                  onSuccess: function() {
               // Execute deletion
               new Ajax.Request(target.attr('href'), options);

Hope it'll be a help!
