I favor this option personally because I believe it allows excellence in user interface design, but I also foresee a likely result which is that different classes of applications will have an entirely different look and feel also in the window decoration level.

The problem there being that 90% of developers think they're excellent at user interface design. And the people who suffer will be the users who disagree.

Drawing your own decorations is not the same as forcing users to use bad software.
