You believe wrongly. It's the Terminate_Server symbol, and you can bind 
it to whatever you want with XKB.

Now, arguably, a better approach would have been to leave DontZap as the 
default but remove the Terminate_Server entry from the default XKB maps. 
That would let clients rebind it if they want to, which can be done 
without requiring administrative privileges.
