That would be much better.

You mean wherever we can't use 'pop-to-buffer-same-window' instead?
'switch-to-buffer' is different.  Reconciling 'force-same-window' and
'switch-to-buffer-in-dedicated-window' looks rather painful to me.

What did you try exactly?  Naively spoken, I suppose you would have
bound the dedicated flag of the selected window to 't' to make
sure it can't get used and 'switch-to-buffer-in-dedicated-window' to
'pop' to avoid a user error.
