I just had moved to Linux Arch and now I'm using rhythmbox and I have
a missing feature to me, the ability to close the rhythmbox window and
keep listen to my musics. I read that this feature was remove because
Gnome and others window managers have some applets to show music
player state(MPRIS applets).

So my idea is bring back this behavior without adding a new icon to
notification area, just keep playing music and when user open again
rhythmbox it only 'restore' the window.

Any objection?

I don't think this is a good idea at all.  I don't see why some applications
should be special, and I don't see why users should have to guess which ones
stay running when you close the window and which ones don't.

If you want rhythmbox to keep running, just don't close the window.  If you
find it annoying to have the window open, that's a window management problem
that should be solved by your window manager.
