I wrote the answer to that many times, almost in every message I
posted lately in this thread: BECAUSE THE FRAME IS MAXIMIZED.

A maximized frame should stay that way for as long as the user wants
that.  The only way the user says she no longer wants a maximized
frame is (a) by explicitly changing the frame dimensions, or (b) by
changing the fullscreen frame parameter to something else.

Maximizing the frame is not just a quick way of changing its
dimensions, it's something else.  It makes the frame _qualitatively_
different.

Now, if you don't agree with that, we will have to disagree.  I've
said everything I have to say on this matter.
