No, the new location of the Close button is not in any safe place - it is right next to the 'Edit' and 'View' menus in most applications and right next to the middle of the 'Applications' menu for maximized windows (or any windows put into the top-left corner of the screen. It is surrounded by useful functionality, which is not harder to reach realiably because of this mine.

Also, if 'ugly' is a valid argument, I think it looks ugly when everything is piled up in one side of the window and the other side is bare and unused.
