Firstly I apologise for previous 5 garbadge messages came out of me - Lotus 
Notes has gone mad and prior to crashing spammed this list with garbadge.

It has to be actions allowed regardless of current state.

_NET_WM_STATE should be updated in that case and Pager/tasklist should 
recognize it and change Maximize button into Normilize button.
Thing is that even if window is maximized - there still needs to be a button 
to un-maximize it. So the button stays - its sematic changes.

IT has to be used in conjunction with _NET_WM_STATE and should not be updated 
when state changes.
