It was already agreed in previous meetings to preserve the window in the input 
resource (not yet done) like we do for audio outputs, for a variety of reasons 
that I am not going to go through yet again.

So of course that specific functionality is gone. Not that it prevents 
wallpaper mode. You don't need to delete a window to not use it. Indeed, 
wallpaper mode still works with non-embedded video, and never worked with Qt-
embedded video, for me.
