One way is to set the value of special-display-regexps to a regexp
that matches any buffer name.

I think Emacs does that automatically.  In any case, you could use
"C-x 5 o".

You could set up the list in delete-frame-functions to do that.

Then make special-display-regexps a bit less trivial ;-)

It's IMHO a bad idea to try to tweak Emacs's look and feel in such a
fundamental way.  You are welcome to try, but I'd warn you that you
will meet many obstacles down the road.  It's just not the way Emacs
was designed to work.
