Yes, X11 seems a lot friendlier in that respect. My understanding is
unlike X11, windows are tightly linked to the thread that created them.
If the vout_display thread were to receive notifications, those should
posted by the vout window provider thread (not the OS)

Anyway, vlc design in that matter is a polling system on Windows.
(even if a WM_WINDOWPOSCHANGED is coded, which only reports changes
 pertaining to the vout display subwindows)
