It may have not been easy 15-20 years ago, but today it is a solved
problem.  Many other applications have worked out ways to deal with such
changes.  Emacs could simply emulate one of those.

What little I ever knew about W32 has mostly faded by now... and I'm
pretty sure I never knew the answer to that question.

Not really, IMO.  On the mac there's a green button in the upper left of
every application window that maximizes it.  You have to respond to that
button somehow and maximizing the frame is the right (and consistent)
response.
