No, certainly no.

Nothing, other than a message to the user "Attempt to bury buffer in
dedicated window", or something more friendly but equivalent.

 "burying a buffer" /= "iconifying a frame". The fact that the window
is dedicated does not turn that difference suddenly into an equality.

Please note a difference between your use of Emacs and mine: I *never*
use multiple frames. So if I happen to have a dedicated window and I
accidentaly try to bury the buffer, iconifying my only frame is never,
ever going to be useful. It will *always* be followed by de-iconifying
it and then fixing the problem.

Of course, it's not often that I have a single, dedicated window in
the frame. But I use dedicated windows for some things (like the
output of bs-show), and I sometimes do C-x 1 while on one of these
buffers.
