Ahh, good point. So, perhaps it should only make the new body automatically for operations that don't depend on other shapes.

I'm probably not following your suggestion, but generally I'm not a fan of adding UI elements when there's already UI for a particular task. To me, the modal popup makes sense when FreeCAD can't know what to do. I'm just suggesting that in the specific case of a document with no bodies, the "right" thing to do is sometimes obvious enough that it shouldn't require more clicks or any questions from FreeCAD.
Basically, the issue I have with the popup is that it adds a click to my usual workflow (which starts by making a sketch), where I don't see any benefit. Will think about it a bit more and maybe come up with some proposed code changes in a few days. -Ian-
