If you maximize another application on your system, do you see any
borders?  I don't here.

Yes.  But sending the window manager an explicit resizing request
lifts that restriction, IIUC.

It depends on how you move and resize it.

I have to admit that such behavior sounds strange.  Does it have a title
bar though?

I suppose the same rules hold for the system menu and mouse-dragging.
So if you can move or resize a maximized/fullscreen frame via the system
menu, the OS is not aware that your frame is maximized/fullscreen.
