There should be a way Wine could tell the window to not allow manual resize, but it would probably be very OSX specific and not wanted in Wine source... I don't think its anything wrong with X11 on Macs other than your not supposed to be able to do it, but X11 still lets you try because its not being told to disable it. If Wine tells the window to resize, it resizes just fine.... graphics scaling with window changes and not just changing the resolution in the window would be cool, but I think that would be a major PITA to implement.
If you're looking for RANDR in Xquartz (to allow fullscreen and resolution switching) look for Xquartz 2.6.0 out by the end of the year, or you can get alpha builds from the xorg-server-devel install on Macports. I have a few games I've been playing on Wine with it, and its actually coming along nicely, at least on 10.6, theres some bugs affecting earlier versions but they should be cleared up soon.
