The name of the application in the title is useful. It helps you pick
the Emacs window out of multiple applications operating on the same
file. For example, a Dired buffer showing a directory and Thunar
showing the same directory.

This is important in contexts where the window contents are not
visible, e.g. a taskbar showing minimized windows, or a
tiling/tabbing/stacking window manager such as i3 showing a single
window in the stack and the titles of all other windows in the same
