This is actually a good argument in my book. Together with Braden's 
example on how to do it subtly, I concur. It's not really necessary to 
convey the meaning of the close button in the tab, but considering the 
need of close buttons at other places, having it consistently marked 
with an X is desirable.

Leads to the question, who and how do we present the results of our 
discussions. (Not to imply this discussion is over, of course, but at 
least I'm won over until a better argument against the X comes up...)
