Could you identify the boundary between just making a window larger and 
maximizing it? I can't. What about Windows 7 "snap" feature, is it 
resizing or maximizing? In other words, my understanding is that if a 
window is resizable, it should be maximizable as well. However, as I 
wrote in my previous emails, sometimes it's out of Java control: we can 
say if a window should be resizable or not, and the platform decides if 
it is minimizable/maximizable or not.
