For me it isn't a shame its instead a restriction of the Graphic Engine which couldn't be overlooked. Resizing the window would resize the Avatar Panel ( the area where your Avatar is being rendered ) which in-turn causes the Camera pointing towards the avatar and other elements to slightly shift outside the View-Port.
We've already got ourselves a new polished Graphic Engine for the next iteration which can be resized just like a normal window and the avatar would stay intact. You can change the avatar, background image and the avatar mode without restarting the Assistant.
Moreover the phase has begun... we are now re-writing every plugin used in P8.1 from scratch for the next iteration.
