Doesn't even BEGIN to answer the question.

Still doesn't answer that question either.

I said "hi devs" because I needed someone with the knowledge of WHY, not just 
an end user reason, but a dev description that is technical.

That tells me nothing.
That only tells me what you assign to a Windows Guest.
What it doesn't tell me is what the tools require in seamless mode, including 
but not limited to the Windows Guest and Dom0.

Further to that question being answered was... How many resources does it 
require per window that is converted to it's own display window?
Along with, Is there a big difference for requirements comparing 1440x900 and 
1920x1080 ?

You don't know, so you are not a dev?
The thing is they are already separating the windows to make individual windows 
on Dom0, even though each of those are merely the overlapped windows in windows 
itself, and they remain overlapped in windows.

I am inquiring this in technical form so that I can further understand some 
things in regards to parts that I"m looking at at the moment. 

While I do appreciate user involvement, I prefer you to not answer what you 
have no idea about, that keeps things clean and me not getting frustrated 
because an end user tries to answer a technical question that they have no idea 
about nor the knowledge of what is involved in such a task.

So please, refrain from answering my questions with details that don't answer 
anything. If the website had the information, I would not be asking.
