related to bug 1489020, but we may do something in the near term to "bound" the window title bar to the display

You've always been able to (and should be able to) drag a window under the Unity7 panel. And you can drag it back out again, just using Alt+drag. So all that's missing in Unity8 really is Alt+drag and also correct placement so as to avoid accidental placement under the panel.

so wrt #3 comment - realize that with pocket desktop, you can easily be in windowed mode with only a mouse and no keyboard, can easily see this being a common use case (browsing, presentation mode, content consumption user)

so we need a solution to either (a) guarantee a means to pull the window out from the top panel with the mouse or (b) prevent the window from being positioned where the top bar ends up beneath the panel
(b) seems like a nice short term compromise

The linked branch prevents windows to be dragged under the panel by dragging on the title bar. In case a window should still end up under the panel (might happen on alt+drag eventually as commnt #3 points out) it will be positioned below the panel when it's closed and reopened. Except from the not yet supported alt+drag in unity8, this seems to reflect unity7's behavior.
