Yes, they are all pretty much saying "the window manager won't do
anything with POPUP windows" and that's correct. However, since
applications shouldn't be overriding the window manager behaviour,
that's the "correct" way to circumvent unwanted window manager

I'm not sure what the "many features" mentioned there exactly are, but
since you would be overriding the wm anyway, I doubt there will be
much that you lose...

Depends on whatever "your purposes" might be of course, you neglected
to mention them ;)
