As in currently stands, in-application splitting adds a only a minimum of
visual clutter (a splitter bar) and appropriate shortcuts can be added for
navigating around the views within the application (Shift+Tab).

If you do this in the WM, you'd have to find a way to avoid duplicating the
menus, toolbars and other UI elements which you only require one set of
per-application (or currently, per top-level Window) instead of per view area.

In short - getting splitting working at the WM level might not be too hard. 
Getting it working in a way which doesn't feel like a tech demo / prototype
requires somewhat more work.
