The Stylist window sets:


But also sets:


An EWMH-compliant window manager is going to make decisions regarding what
decorations to provide based on the window type.

I see in Sawfish's lisp/ChangeLog:

        2002-10-17  John Harper  <jsh@unfactored.org>

        * sawfish/wm/state/wm-spec.jl: support some 1.1 features:
        (Last two are actually 1.0)

        * sawfish/wm/frames.jl (frame-type-fallback-alist): added more
        types: utility, toolbar, menu, splash

        * sawfish/wm/windows.jl (mark-window-as-desktop,
        mark-window-as-dock): set more properties, including window
        depth and type

I don't read Lisp at all well, but I presume that whatever decisions
Sawfish makes regarding utility windows requires that they do not have a
close widget.  Wm-spec 1.3 does not say that a UTILITY window must have
one, although the fact that in this case ALLOWED_ACTIONS includes the CLOSE
hint would imply that there should be one.

Openbox 3.x also adds the close widget.
