Could be, but if we want to change that, we need to come up with some
useful idea of how to deal with a situation where you have the fringe
between the display margins and the rest of the text area.  Surely, in
this case you must include the display margins in the window
dimensions, but OTOH the fringes separate the window into 2 disjoint
areas.
