It's not transparent, that is, it depends on the order how things are
done.  You can set window attributes like `window-size-fixed' only after
splitting.  You have to bind `window-min-height' and `window-min-width'
around the splitting code.  `set-window-configuration' is much simpler
in this regard.

I suppose we agree that it's much simpler when we can set the window
sizes directly (and apply any frame resizing afterwards).
