I did this for `dired-pop-to-buffer'.

Good suggestion. I found the following candidates:

`Electric-pop-up-window', `ibuffer-confirm-operation-on',
`disabled-command-function', `proced-send-signal',
`fancy-startup-screen', `display-time-world', `widget-choose'.

Can someone comment on these?  We might also have to consider windows
affected by `temp-buffer-resize-mode'.  I'll leave it to Carsten to
figure out what's best for `org-mode'.

As for `calendar' I share Stefan's POV ...
