We don't have to look very far into the future for this, or to very
exotic window managers.  My current window manager is 'awesome', and its
key bindings are *all* tunable through Lua code.  The setup I use now
binds <win - f4> to the `kill-client' event (where <win> is the key to
the left of <left_alt>.  In this setup there's also another tiny nit
that affects what <alt-f4> means: <alt> is always passed to the X11
client frame as <meta>.

I also don't see why Emacs should start binding <alt-f4> or <win-f4> or
any other key some window manager _may_ bind.
