Ctrl-w is the canonical "close window/dialog" key in ardour (hard-coded). the use of Escape is purely an accident of GTK internals and has never been intentional. It doesn't work for *windows* as opposed to *dialogs* which are fundamentally different - a dialog is just there to capture a (small) amount of input from the user (e.g. a confirmation) and then vanish; windows can have unbounded lifetimes and can be arbitrarily complex. Escape does not close a window; Ctrl-w should close them.

i would leave the default behaviour for all windows (alt+F4) to close the window

that behaviour is under the control of a window manager, not ardour. it is similar to clicking on the "X" icon in the window frame.
