These are global bindings, I don't think that they should be locally rebound.
The binding of ESC ESC ESC to delete-completion-window is local here I suppose. Binding C-x 0 and C-G to delete-completion-window too would not be to surprising in my opinion, but instead helpful.

You need to go back to the minibuffer before typing C-g, but that's the case
for any command which prompts in the minibuffer if you switch windows, even
without completion.
Yes, but how do you do that from the keyboard? (Without using ESC ESC ESC which is special here, but BTW not mentioned in the manual.)
