I don't disagree with this approach, but it would be delightful if this were 
noted in the spec.  The current language (in my reading) makes it sound like 
the TYPE hints are intended to be a complete replacement for the mwm hints.

I've had a few cases now of people wanting to be netwm-compliant in their 
toolkits asking what the "correct" way to get an undecorated window is.
