I'm not clear about that one:

Do you mean to remove the option altogether and hard-code it to

While I agree that managed mode is the one true mode, I'm not sure we
can completely remove the unmanaged mode:
 * until the window management rewrite is done we will still have
Z-order issues that require either the unmanaged or desktop mode.
Note that it's not 100% sure that these issues will be solved even
after the window management rewrite.
 * afaik we cannot display the system menu in managed mode, i.e., in
managed mode, clicking on the top-left window corner gives the window
manager menu and not the application specified menu. Fortunately one
very rarely needs this.
