Modal close button not focusable; ESC works

Hi all.

Recently a coworker filed this issue on the TinyMCE Editor:


The issue is that the close button on a modal dialog is not reachable
via the keyboard, but the escape key will close the dialog. My
feeling is that this is not sufficient, but I didn't have much luck
coming up with a good reason.

Would love to read any thoughts you folks might have. Feel free to
post here, or on the issue itself.
