tab cannot be used because it breaks accessibility keynav. Basically the tab 
key needs to always move inbetween widgets. See gtk-dev and desktop-devel 
mailing list for some long threads on this issue.

There is a HIG bug regarding this. Basically in gnome esc is always bound to 
cancel, but closing the find dialog is not canceling everything you've done 
in it. So there is disagreement. please comment on the HIG bug. We plan to 
follow the HIG recommendation on this issue.
