Emacs could be compatible with the system it is currently running
under as well.  If running under Windows or KDE, it could use the
behaviour used in Windows and KDE.  Then emacs could blend into
"alien" systems better.  I think this is already the case for many
things in the Windows Emacs port (e.g., the Emacs Windows port is
consistent with how Windows work, not how GNOME works).
