accessibility of the WM is related since presumably you would only use
the onscreen keyboard if you are also using other accessibility
features. This may be a flawed assumption; I don't really know that
much about it.

Anyway if people are happy to do ONSCREEN_KEYBOARD we may as well put
it in, I was just worried there would be objections to such a special

Yes, I don't see anything wrong with it. I'm not sure it would be used
for types other than NORMAL but if someone wanted to use it for docks
I guess it would be harmless. I like the way it only affects
relationship to windows of same type (so you can't cheat and use
FLOATING to implement something that should be marked as a dock).

What is the use-case for this?
