Well, one could just stop shrinking the window.

To wit: in single-window frames, the contents get scrolled left/right as
needed to have the cursor on-frame.  In multiple-window frames, one
could equally well scroll the whole window configuration.  Sure, C-x o
might cause window borders to jump around...

It might at least keep windows accessible in a somewhat
predictable/intuitive manner.
