Most newbie or ppl just learn how to use computer such as 'a month ago'
is scared that he/she will ruin the 'Computer'. several year ago
i was thought that if u are not sure.. just "cancel". 
esp i a case of "yes/no/cancel".. to play save, cancel.

but in the case of "auto-apply" prefs, if joe suddently click here and 
there, suddently something happened that scared him, but not sure which 
part of prefs he touched, 'cancel' or <esc> might help him.
it would be better to have 'cancel' or <esc> that undo change it a 
particular prefs session.

this is based on my early days of comupting experince..
