> With regard to every form having ESC dismiss it, why is that such a problem?  Are you stuck thinking about modal-type content that is not in scope here?

I’m used to the interaction model for modals (ahem), where it prevents other interactions until you press esc.

I guess I haven’t needed to use esc for non-modals, where the usual interaction is to click outside of the trigger/new-content area.

If that’s standard (or becoming so) for tooltips and drop-down menus then that is reasonable, thanks.
