More info here, section C-1:

Quoting recommendation:
There could exist tooltip above the Output window
(or it's Titlebar at least) and it will contain
information about ESC shortcut.

- applies to all sliding windows or just Output? Why?
- implementation is unfortunately problematic:
either winsys will modify shortcut of foreign top
component (which will work only sometimes) or top
component should modify its tooltip based on its
sliding/non-sliding state. In this case top
component will need 46340 first.

Still valid IMHO.
