   wmctrl, xdootool, xatk etc...
   Most users rare use SKIP_TASKBAR hint and never use it for windows
that can be iconified. If user do this, he know what he do.
 DJ> What problem does it cause that they stay in the menu?
   Unwanted place expense. Especially if these windows have ALL_DESKTOP
   Technically this feature implement only one line in the
         (ft->iconic && !ft->parents) ||

   I think the good solution is global config key as
<ForceIconifiedInList> with the  "yes" default value (for compatibility).
Yours truly Alexey
