But media players are a bad example, they usually even don't want window 
borders at all and want to display fancy player buttons styled and themed :)

I am not saying it is a bad idea in general, but I haven't yet seen any good 
example why an application would want options in there, especially consideren

No problem, I understood that.
I just think it is highly unlikely that their will be additions to the 
enhanced window manager specifications or even just KWin's implementation for 
a feature that IMHO doesn't add any additonal value.

But I am neither a wm-spec developer nor KWin's maintainer, so you might 
better ask on the wm-spec list or contact KWin's 
maintainer Lubos Lunak.
