Who is "we"?

It would solve the issue with the MacOS menu. It would allow
using existing dock-bars for dock-apps. It would allow me to
run anything I want (e.g. some small text-mode app in an xterm)
on some screen border and not getting resized or covered by
rearrangements in the managed layer. (larswm had seomthing like
a "tool" flag for such clients and tried not to overlap with
such windows automatically - we don't need to go that far.)

I'm not saying everybody needs it, but I can well imagine
it's use. (And didn't you say this "managed area" is still
handled within wmii? So why hide it to outside?)
