Yes this is the least intrusive option.  Better yet, tie in Ctrl+Z with 
quit.blend and allow the user to seamlessly undo across a file, if they 
do make a mistake it is the first thing they will press.

The secondary solution is to create a Save, Save as, Quit... type menu 
option for any of these file tools, in order to communicate a decision 
to the user.  it takes no more clicks than currently, i.e. there is 
already a Ctrl+X dialogue box.  So there is no productivity loss to 
implementing a good user centred approach in this case.
