I really like your predictable behavior.  I never thought about it
that way, but now that you put it this way, I think "dwim" in this
situation should be independent of where point is in the text.  It
should depend on what the user did, instead.

I'm not sure I like your "beginning of window" step, however, because
I usually hop through buffers in paragraphs, sexps, or defuns, or
whatever the text-based unit is.  Using a display-based unit is weird.
