I'm not sure how window size got related with $XDG_CACHE_HOME?
Just because program generates them? With this, what about
created icons on desktop via GUI dialog? Implying previous, they
are also non essential and should go with $XDG_CACHE_HOME, just because
program generated them.
IMHO all files used for some kind of configuration/re-configuration,
either by user or by program itself, should go on the same place and
that place is already defined.
