But what if other users don't like other things in ‘keyboard-escape-quit’
or their priorities.  Shouldn't all its actions be customizable?
For example, I'd prefer to have this rule somewhere in the middle:

  ((eq major-mode 'wdired-mode)

Maybe better to change the implementation of ‘keyboard-escape-quit’
to use ‘add-function’ from nadvice.el, so it would be easier to add/delete
some actions from it?
