consider a simple dialog. Should it have a close button or not? If the
application adds an explicit close button, there are now two areas of the
window as displayed by most WMs which will, upon being clicked, cause the
window to be hidden.

Yes, in case of server-side decorations. When using client-side
decorations, the expectation is that the WM does not add any controls at
all and the application can add as many close buttons as it sees fit (read:
one). Though to be honest, a simple dialog is not too interesting

Well, there's slight difference: if the application hangs, the
WM-provided close button will still work (application hung, force
close?) while the client-side close button will be useless.
