Quitting with the close box on Mac

It used to be that a Mac app should never quit when its last window was 
closed, except in the case of single-window utilites. The menubar 
remained and the app kept running.

Now that Mavericks quits apps for you when the last window closes 
(whether you want it to or not) should a Mac LC app do the same? The 
problem with a LC app that uses the splash screen approach is that all 
visible windows may be closed but the main app is still running, and the 
OS will never quit it. Should the app be doing that itself now?
