I mean numberboxes' keyboard shortcuts should have limited scope such that 
people can define patch-wide shortcuts that work without having to press 
Escape after every Enter in a numberbox.

It doesn't matter if you don't want those keyboard shortcuts. This is why 
Miller's Pd has been free of any concern for releasing numberbox focus.

Another shortcut could be used instead of Enter to get the current 
behaviour, for people who need it.

But as Jonathan said, this only happen if you edit a numberbox' contents 
from edit mode. That's possible, but it's also rare.
