A dedicated window is dedicated to a single buffer.  Placing a
different buffer in a dedicated window is a bug.  You need not
agree, of course.

Let the user pick the behavior.

With choices that include that behavior you don't like: delete
the dedicated window (and frame if alone in the frame) if the
buffer the window is dedicated to is killed.

And hopefully with the other user choices also fixing the bug,
one way or another: not allowing a different buffer to be shown
in a dedicated window.
