Currently you can make Rhythmbox minimise-to-tray by:
a) clicking on the tray icon (or using Hide Window in the context menu)
b) typing Ctrl-W when it is the focused window (File->Close)

and can minimise it normally with the minimise button. Given that there
are easy ways to minimise it with both the keyboard and mouse, I don't
think we need to add another way at the expense of removing the easy way
to quit. Given the number of people opposed to making the close button
minimise and the other ways of doing it, I think it would be better to
change it back.
