Curious: why does ablak take -on here?

Vowel harmony.

Sorry. I meant why -on as opposed to not taking a suffix or as opposed to taking some other suffix, not why -on as opposed to other forms of the superessive.

I guess that's just Hungarian semantics. In English, we say jump out of the window; they say jump out on the window.
