Window shading would work for your example as well.

At least, I think it's called shading, where it "rolls up" to show only the title bar.

Sounds like a variant of minimizing, if you ask me. They both satisfy the "Make this a smaller size" or "hide the window contents from me" command. I'd be ok with just "shading", I think I'd have to play with it a bit.
