I mean compatibility with previous versions.

It looks unnatural that we can't know the offsets of the available
display area, if we are to have primitives to get its size.  Also we
need to consider multiple-monitor environment.

Anyway, no matter how you try to specify position/size in detail at
the Lisp level, additional constraints are forced by the window
manager on X11 and the Cocoa framework on Mac OS X.  And such
additional constraints actually solve the problem in your motivating
example in the first place.  It looks more natural to implement such
constraints in the remaining environment, i.e., W32.

Of course they are used, but just internally.
