Right, and although there's something to be said for doing things
à la Emacs, I'm gradually accepting that it's not possible to
convert everyone to the old-school point of view. ;)

Absolutely, e.g. for reading info pages.  It should be little
more work to do this agreeably than to do it at all.

This, on the other hand, seems harder to get right without
disturbing people's habits.  Perhaps adding more customization to
pop-to-buffer and display-buffer is the way to go?

As long as they're optional.  Figuring out the interaction
between `custom-set-variables' and `setq' wasn't my idea of a
good time, and I'd rather not do something similar for
`gui-save-dialog-options'.  :)
