Indeed.  This is something that comes up quite often in our bug reports
and support requests.  People want to do this, and our answer always has
to be "On X11, the window manager may ignore the borderless hint." I
don't think it's necessary to be able to control individual decorations
like you could using _MOTIF_WM_HINTS, but the possibility of turning off
 all decorations is sorely needed.  I, for one, would also like to see
more policy spelled out for the various window types, but I'll leave
that discussion for another day.
