My point is that these expectations are hard to meet with the current
design.  Most of those hooks are called from the display engine, which
normally has no idea what was changed since the last redisplay, in
terms of window dimensions and buffers displayed in each window.

You must keep in mind that Emacs has the MVC (model-view-controller)
design, where the View part -- redisplay -- basically just reflects on
the glass what it finds in the various Lisp data structures at the
moment when redisplay is invoked.  It doesn't track changes in
windows, frames, and buffers.  But the users of those hooks want to be
invoked when some such change happened.  And that is the crux of the
problem.
