I'm not sure what you mean with "Those functions".  Running
'window-size-change-functions' already records the current sizes in
preparation for the call during next redisplay.
'window-state-change-functions' would do the same for the values it

What you mention here would affect 'window-size-change-functions'
already now.  I see no great harm in that.  If running
'window-size-change-functions' succeeds, callers will have adapted to
the new sizes and no further calls are necessary.  If it fails, the
old sizes will continue to exist and the functions will be called
(maybe again) during the next internal redisplay.
