I think application size is up to the windowmanager. Your wm should
have tools to help you save the status of applications. Enlightenment
certainly does.

Apps may set themselves a minimum or a recommended size, but they
should not interfere with the job of the wm by specifying the size
themselves. Applications (such as netscape) who save and load their
own geometry aren't doing users any favours. IMO.
