Xfwm titlebar negative vertical offset

I was wondering if it is possible to give xfwm titlebar negative vertical offset. It seems like it isn't right now but maybe in the future?

quick mockup:

That is (kind of) like what Gnome/GTK3 is going for with client-side decorations. It will be interesting to see how the Xfce devs deal with this.

I don't believe this is currently possible with Xfce mostly because the Window decorations (xfwm = title, buttons) are separate from the widget decorations (gtk = menu bar).

Yes, I kind of like what Gnome team is doing with a titlebar. Maybe this could be some kind of alternative, save some space but keep a classic menu bar. We'll see how a transition will go.
