An alternative UI model would be to think of growing a frame top

until the shade hits a window mode line or lower border).

That's what maple-minibuffer does, mentioned in my previous email in
this thread. With a link to a screencast.

Only up to a point...

The pop-up frame is fixed size.  When the maple framei s not
popped up the minibuffer remains at the bottom of the frame.

Do you mean the echo area or the commands which use the minibuffer which maple-minibuffer ignores? I'm not sure why 'eval-expression' is in 'maple-minibuffer:ignore-action' by default, but there must be some reason.

In any case, if we want this feature well-integrated, there must be some initiative from the maintainers toward that end.
