So, I started a thread about this on wm-spec-list, but I didn't seem
to be able to convince other WM authors that it was a problem. :-/

IMO it clearly is a problem, we need to know definitively if apps or
the WM do this, or it will never work right.

Because given current specs the WM _can't_ do this
correctly/accurately, my opinion is that we have to say it's up to the
application for now. However I think it might be nice to extend the
specs such that the WM could do it. See the wm-spec-list thread.
