Mode setting from application

I was just thinking of a use case and wondering if it has been considered in

A full screen video player would like to match the refresh rate of the
display to the refresh rate of the video to get smooth playback. (e.g. XBMC
playing a 24Hz movie on your TV.)

I was thinking that the preferred mode would be some kind of "window
property". While the app was running in windowed mode the compositor would
use whatever mode it preferred, but when i goes into full screen mode the
compositor would choose the mode preferred by the full screen app.

Is this something that has been considered already?
