No.  But I don't use line numbers so I can't tell.  I came to think
about it because you started to care specially about the minibuffer and
tip frames and I thought that a solution where adding such special cases
in a more genral way might be useful---just like we do with scroll bars,
margins or fringes which all exist on a per window basis.

Sure.  Eventually, it's up to the design of the user interface.
