If someone actually reads that text I think that impression gets very much
stronger ;-)

Most other applications have the buttons at the bottom. The idea as far as I
understand it is to have the field and buttons ordered so that what is used
first comes first. This is both a visual ordering and a keyboard ordering.
You get used to press TAB to go to the button or field you need next. (I
think we should encourage keyboard use. Accessability and health.)
