Thanks, Martin, for your response.

with-output-to-temp-buffer usually are used to show useful text.
with-temp-buffer-window is sometimes used to show temporary text such as
used by dired to show a list of marked files. Certainly I can put a hook
temp-buffer-window-show-hook but then I also need to opt out those
temporary cases. And it seems temp-buffer-resize-mode is now
unnecessarily coupled with the window.el code, i.e. if we were to move
temp-buffer-resize-mode to a standalone package it won't work without
help from window.el.

The more interesting question is is it possible to merge these two
macros? For example, will it work if we can re-design the first argument
of with-output-to-temp-buffer to accept a list (BUFFER-OR-NAME ACTION
