We all know what opinions are like, but mine is that dialog buttons
are a little detail that doesn't matter, and instant apply dialogs are
a really substantive feature worth worrying about.

Think of it this way: there's a limited amount we can be different
before everyone just hates it on sight and stops caring. Spend your
"different points" wisely. Use the not-that-critical details to make
people feel comfortable.
