Well, I wouldn't (there are quite a few keybindings where "k" just
kills something).  And since neither C-x 0 nor C-x 5 0 kills a buffer,
I would not expect C-x 4 0 to do it, either.

It all boils down to what feels more natural and expected.  Of course
that is a matter of personal taste, and I like to think my taste is
not too far out here.  Other opinions?
