I'm OK with limiting this call to surface rendering. But at the very 
least it should also included OpenGL rendering. It has the same issue 
when the host is resized. The video will be stretched unnaturally and 
the text rendering will not adapt to the actual display size (we avoid 
font resizing/stretching as much as possible).

A new meaning ? I don't understand to what you're referring to. This is 
the API to set the size of the vout_window_t that is then used by the 
vout display module. There is nothing new here, only a way for the host 
app to tell about it.
