The 'close'-button might well be THE single attribute you expect any window to have; if there's a window you expect to be able to close this window. Also it would be pretty inconsistent if there's a close-button in the overview when there is none in the worspace view. The whole idea of substituting a straightforward, in-your-face obvious way of closing a window by an action that is more complicated and whose discoverabilty is dubious to say the least, seems quite unmotivated. There is simply no compelling reason for this change and lots of good reasons against it. It seems more like an attempt at finding a justfication for the existence of the application menu in the top bar - which is currently lacking.
