Suppose the Emacs frame is a window in a tiling WM that just asked Emacs
to shrink that frame because the user needs it for another application.
Do you think that user would care about what Emacs tells how to get back
some old window configuration?  And what would Emacs tell?  Something
like "try to delete some windows you currently can't see but could see
if you resized your frame to what it was before you wanted to shrink
it and after that carry on with your stupid application"?

Believe me.  Deleting windows in some way is the one bullet we do have
to bite here.
