It all depends on the reason for the "messed up".  E.g. it can be messed
up because some code drew something on screen without going through
"change matrices and reflect that change on screen".  That's what
I would understand as the "natural meaning" for "garbaged" (and in that
case the matrices might still be trusted to reflect "what we'd like to
see on screen").

So, IIUC this "natural meaning" is wrong.  And "garbaged" is really
meant to say "disable all optimizations".
Which then begs the question: what is the difference with

No, I mean that the windowing-system should already arrange to send us
the relevant expose events (which could be "no events at all", if the
windowing system were to draw the frame from some backed up copy).

Indeed and I think that's right because the expose_frame calls will be
performed later in response to expose events.
