I create resizable modal dialogs on a frequent basis. To me, sizability 
is a convenience for the user. At the same time, modal dialogs should 
not be maximized. My opinion.

Minimizing a modal dialog does not achieve much because the owning 
window is still blocked. Unless that window is minimized along. At least 
Windows usually disables the window decoration buttons of the owning 
window though.
