Yes, but I think it is better to allow that and make ESC pop down
the dialog.

I, at least, wouldn't have guessed previously that would work and I
would end up killing Emacs in that situation.

Well, it is the standard for Mac, Motif, GTK and MS Windows.  It is
even mentioned in many style guides.  You know it now :-)

How is it useful to have dialogue boxes with no active buttons?

I can't think of any situation I would use them, but disallowing something
that has been allowed previously is a potential source of confusion.
