It'd probably be an acceptable option, but only if we can resuscitate
a window after it disappeared since the user may accidentally move the
modeline further than she intended.

Could be. My beginners didn't find it obvious at all. They expect to
manage such visual elements in a more direct manner. Especially since you
otherwise (i.e. if you use a menu bar entry) have to somehow specify which
window you want to delete.

Not when running in a tty.
