Presumably the monitors used will be a rectangular array. You could
just specify a top-left and bottom-right monitor. Or maybe it would be
easier to specify x- and y-coordinates in the root window, since
monitors tend to be of different sizes. It really depends on what the
applications are, I think.

About your proposal, I think you should let each window manager decide
what to do with transient windows, though I'd expect most will do what
you suggested. Also, I don't see any reason the property should be
written by the window manager and communicated through client
messages. The client can add the hint to its own window with fewer
context switches.
