Inkscape does actually allow you to open multiple documents in the
same process. It is not a good example for true SDI.

I don't think binary size is a compelling reason here. The main
advantage is that the dialog will look and feel the same in all
applications. The user will recognize the dialog which makes the app
easier to use.
