The state is already saved and restored there. Why not to do the same
for the geometry?
I think that it's generally frowned upon putting your position on screen
because it means "you know too much".

Basically it's supposed to be the window manager task, not your app.
And if the window manager doesn't do this the user has to move their windows around again upon start? Especially when working on big displays where the user wants to have certain placements for different programs it would be helpful also to restore the position on the screen automatically.

The size is being restored, at least for a couple of programs I checked (konsole, kwrite, dolphin). Is this done by kwin? I don't think there is a big practical difference from the user perspective between "restoring the size" and "restoring the position"
with respect to "you know too much"...
