I'm against adding Maximize buttons: Export, Search, Multipage, and Contact sheet are modal dialogs. Modal dialogs should never have maximize buttons and FAIK Windows doesn't even support this.

???

These windows have previews so it make a lot of sense to see as much as possible from the preview - that's why I requested it. More mature dialogs like Batch Convert and Batch Rename have it (I hope that it would be not removed).

Modal dialogs should never have maximize buttons and FAIK Windows doesn't even support this.


??? (again)

The Modal style of a form doesn't have anything to do with its attributes. It is just a matter to set independent properties of the said form. Btw, Minimize button of a modal form can have much more annoying effects compared with Maximize.
