The implementation is not correct: because the foreground item handles the escapePressed event, it doesn’t give app developers a chance to override this behaviour for their popovers. They might want to handle the escapePressed event to e.g. do some specific processing before closing the popover (which they wouldn’t do when closing the popover in another way, e.g. when pressing Enter).
