Ok to set _NET_WM_STATE for withdrawn windows?

I'm a bit unclear about one aspect the _NET_WM_STATE handling. The spec
says "The Window Manager SHOULD honor _NET_WM_STATE whenever a withdrawn
window requests to be mapped.". Does this mean that it is ok to set
_NET_WM_STATE manually before it's initially mapped? That seems to be a
big no-no during normal operation.
