Still no way to force Windows 7 to use only one of the dialogs?

No, and it is highly unlikely there ever will be. It would not make any sense in any case. Various programs use the dialogs they are programmed to use. They are usually based on whatever program frame was available to them at the time they were built, but some are also heavily modified.
