I would be content with either proposal for dismissal of the modal.  However,
if we have uAs responsible for dismissal of the modal we need an event
mechanism to fire at the modal so that the application can perform cleanup.  If
authors are responsible for dismissal (as they are now with non-native modals)
they can handle any necessary cleanup in their custom close handler.
