Better still: _always_ change data with a do-file, never on the fly. This
way, the changes are transparent and reproducible even after a long time has
elapsed...

I don't think you can do that via the Data Editor. If you want that
echoed in the log, you need to type it, or write and then run a program
that generates that code.

A different question of mine is if there is a different way to document
changes made manual by the data editor as the standard behaviour (in my
version 10 of Stata).
 
When I change something in the data I get the output:
. replace BN8_1 = 24 in 5
. replace epp = 1 in 5
 
These changes are made for a certain case. So if the sorting of cases
changes (e.g. more cases with ids lower than existing ids) I cannot
reproduce the changes for a certain case.
 
Instead I would love to get the changes documented (directly by Stata)
like:
. replace BN8_1 = 24 if id == 1 & episode == 5
. replace epp = 1 if id == 1 & episode == 5
