+       (when-let ((parent (window-parent (selected-window))))
+         (when (window-parameter parent 'window-atom)

I don't know the precise semantics of 'when-let' but I think you
should use

(when (window-parameter nil 'window-atom)
  (let ((root (window-atom-root)))

and then 'walk-window-subtree' from root.  Otherwise, that's the way
to dissolve an atomic group of windows.

'quit-window' does not necessarily restore to a state that invalidates
the atomicity of the containing group.  'delete-window' OTOH may do
that, so if 'quit-window' deletes all windows of an atomic group but
one, that atomic group is dissolved automatically.
