I think so.

IIUC we do care because we want to fit the frame's windows according to
the incoming request.

In any case, the maximized size of the frame is not necessarily an
integral multiple of character sizes so the frame gets or should get
resized pixelwise.

So by default, on Windows I always accept a maximize request and resize
windows accordingly.  For any other size request I process a non-rounded
size iff the variable `frame-resize-pixelwise' is non-nil.

On all other platforms, `frame-resize-pixelwise' has no impact.  If and
whether size hints are turned on and have any impact depends on settings
for the window manager used and is of no concern to me.  Whatever size
is requested by the WM is processed without any rounding.

The interface to the window subsystem will be the function

change_frame_size (struct frame *f, int new_width, int new_height,
                   bool pretend, bool delay, bool safe, bool pixelwise)

which processes new_width and new_height in terms of pixels if pixelwise
is non-nil.
