I don't have a strong opinion :)  I very seldom have to use an Emacs with 
someone else's config, so I wouldn't be bothered if the option existed to 
rebind C-[ to something different from ESC.

By the way, is there a way to change what ESC does? If so, GUI users could just 
bind <escape> to esc-map and ESC to something else.
