"Other applications" mostly don't support buffers with no associated
files, so we had to make a decision which of these two to use.  Since
those other applications force you to decide on exit whether to save
your edits or not, we decided it was more like what Emacs does with
buffers that do visit files.

Don't they? As far as I can remember, Libreoffice does, MS office does, Notepad does... 

They call it "new document" rather than "new file" for this reason, I guess. 

Maybe this button could be bound to a function creating a new buffer with a name like *unnamed[-n]*, and also mark these buffers for query for save on exit?
