But this idea seems reasonable, as standalone from scrollback.
No cropping ever. Ah, how it sounds...

And what $COLUMNS will you report to term apps?
Some of them (like ps) crop their output themselves.
Some (like cat /proc/self/maps) align data columns on term width.
So, desired effect still won't be achieved.
But if you change $COLUMNS it will break much more of other apps.

So, no silver bullet.
