The Window Size Hints (XA_WM_NORMAL_HINTS) that an application provides
for the window manager not only have base_(width|height) and
min_(width|height), they also have max_width and max_height fields.
(also interesting is the (min|max)_aspect...)

However, given scalable fonts this rarely is useful and I am unsure
about the support in the various toolkits and windowmanagers. I am also
unaware of any programs using it.

So, there *is* a standard protocol already...  :-)
