Quitting Emacs for buffer unassociated with file

emacs -Q
C-x f toto
type some stuff
Click the window-manager button to close Emacs (close the frame).

You get this menu (numbered here):

Save file toto?
1 Yes
2 No
3 View This File
4 View Changes In File
5 Save This Buffer But No More
6 No For All

3 and 4 make no sense in this context - they should be dimmed.

If you choose 4, and click the button again, 4 is still an option,
which makes no sense.

5 and 6 should only be active if there are other file-visiting buffers
that are candidates for saving (unsaved since last change), but they
are always shown.

What does "No For All" mean? Unclear. Reword to make clear that it
means do not save this buffer and don't ask about saving any others.

Shouldn't there be an item for saving all modified buffers visiting
