That's why I explicitly mentioned stat jobs to be excluded from the window no 
matter what :)

Hmm, I'm pretty sure the KMail systray icon is not there if there's no mail 
and I'm 100% sure the KWallet icon is not there on a default config if the 
wallet is not in use.

I don't see a problem with icons coming and going as long as there is a good 
cause-and-effect situation for the user and the icon is not going to become a 
flashlight coming and going every second or so. That said, I don't use the 
window myself at all, I'm just trying to think for those who might.
