I run almost all of my windows in some fragment of the total screen. Then I minimize them. And restore them. And close them.
So somehow it slowly is gnawing at me that when I reach to either minimize or close a window ... the third button... maximizes it!
Not least, if you're trying to discreetly minimize that spicy item... look! It's now as large as your monitor will let it!
It's probably a good idea to make the resulting gap a dead area, rather than smush the remaining two buttons together, because that would lead to more accidental closes.
