Do you mean those features are yet to be implemented? BTW, they were
mentioned in the elisp info file.

Let me use this for illustration:
         | ______  ____________________________ |
         ||      || __________________________ ||
         ||      |||                          |||

         ||      |||                          |||
         ||      |||____________W4____________|||
         ||      || __________________________ ||

         ||      |||                          |||
         ||      |||____________W5____________|||
         ||__W2__||_____________W3_____________ |

If I put speedbar buffer in W2, I want those window operations to think
as if W3 is the ``frame root window''. So for example, C-x 1 should not
delete W2. C-x 0 should never have W2 occupy the whole frame.

Is this currently possible?

Unfortunately that would mean difficulty to try it out but I guess I can
wait until 24.1 is released.
