 It is a very reasonable change for any decent window manager (which here 
means one that reasonably supports the EWMH fullscreen state), as they'll 
take care to do everything needed to make a window really fullscreen, even in 
cases like screen size changes. Setting a minimal size there is pointless at 
best. What may possibly break after this change are the likes of TWM that 
still live in the stone age of window management handling, but there I'd 
simply wait for somebody to complain first if that's the case.
