I prefer looking at the docs ;-)

 * gtk_socket_add_id:
 * @socket_: a #GtkSocket
 * @window_id: the window ID of a client participating in the XEMBED protocol.
 * Adds an XEMBED client, such as a #GtkPlug, to the #GtkSocket.

The app is welcome to make the decision, but it's just like an app
deciding to use a pie chart. GTK+ doesn't have a pie chart widget. GTK+
doesn't have an "embed random window" widget either. So you have to go
somewhere other than GTK+ to find this code. GTK+ isn't going to stop
you from doing so.
