The problem with this is this huge workaround talk we have right now. If we use server side decorations, this whole talk is useless, and as said before, the client could still do any modification to the decoration it wants (with the few wanted restrictions of course).

Certainly there should be an easy way to get the "default window decorations". I think the correct way is for the client to call an client-side "appearance library" that can draw these, tell the client about the sizes, and also can draw all the buttons and scroll bars and so on.
