I'm not sure if I totally get what you describe for resizing.. So I'll try to rephrase it: currently the application provide one buffer for the complete window (decoration plus content), you're suggesting that the application sends two buffer one for the inside and one for the decoration, so that if the server detect that the client isn't answering fast enough it can do itself the resizing?
I don't think that it would work very well..
