The floating widget is like a toolwindow, similar to compose a message. And I'm very happy that an 
accidental press of escape doesn't close this dialog (using Thunderbird as well). Resizability is 
permitted for dialogs in LibreOffice, though I dont find the guideline anymore (wait, it was a 
discussion on the mailing list [1]), in order to keep the content at place.

 maybe other messages too

First of all, thanks for sharing the guidelines Heiko.

I'm pretty agree about all except for the usage of escape. When I teach computer, I always explain 
that escape is used inside the window to close floating window, menu and dialog. For example, on 
Thunderbird, escape could close a message window or on LibreOffice 6.0 when I open the save dialog, 
I could close it with escape.

IMO, we should let floating windows resizable. I don't understand what is the problem.

Best regards,
