The last time I looked into org-todo I seen that somewhere a call to
split-window was make, so wathever I was trying to configure with
display-buffer-alist would not conclude.

Then I translated that from Doom's Emacs.

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
;; Ensure todo, agenda, and other minor popups are delegated to the popup system.
;; needed for at least org-noter / org-insert-structure-template
(with-eval-after-load 'org
  (advice-add #'org-switch-to-buffer-other-window :override
              (defun +popup--org-pop-to-buffer-a (buf &optional norecord)
                "Use `pop-to-buffer' instead of `switch-to-buffer' to open buffer.'"
                (pop-to-buffer buf nil norecord)))

  (defun +popup--suppress-delete-other-windows-a (fn &rest args)
    (cl-letf (((symbol-function #'delete-other-windows) #'ignore)
              ((symbol-function #'delete-window) #'ignore))
      (apply fn args)))
  (dolist (fn '(org-add-log-note
    (advice-add fn :around #'+popup--suppress-delete-other-windows-a))

  (advice-add #'org-fit-window-to-buffer :override #'fit-window-to-buffer))

You can see that it is not only the org-no-popup macro that is in
question but more generally the liberal usage of _split/switch/delete

So if we want to make org cooperate with window.el we must ban theses
functions and instead delegate the window management with calls to
proper display functions.

Concretly if you look at org-fast-todo-selection you can see :

	(if expert
	    (set-buffer (get-buffer-create " *Org todo*"))
	  (set-window-buffer (split-window-vertically) (get-buffer-create " *Org todo*"))
	  (org-switch-to-buffer-other-window " *Org todo*"))

Now consider in place :

	(set-buffer (get-buffer-create " *Org todo*"))
        (unless expert
            (display-buffer " *Org todo*"
                              (window-height . fit-window-to-buffer))))

It will display this buffer below the currently selected window and fit

Let's imagine the user wants in place to use :

(add-to-list 'display-buffer-alist
             '(" *Org todo*"
               (side . top)))

Now the buffer display in a side window at top.
