Sounds perfectly reasonable, added that link now to the wiki page under
guidelines. I'd be very appreciate if someone would take a sample
dialog, e.g. the zoom dialog in cui/uiconfig/ui/zoomdialog.ui and apply
those rules to it.

Yeah, button order should be a per-platform thing. I haven't gotten
around to implement that yet, but VclButtonBox in
vcl/source/window/layout.cxx should be tweaked to sort its children in
the platform-preferred ok/cancal/help order. Querying a Window with
WINDOW_HELPBUTTON etc. should get someone most of the way towards that.
