In fact, if anything, then this is what the passage you quoted hints at:
if you support the additional protocols, set _MOTIF_WM_INFO.

If you don't want borderless operation, then don't use the borderless
option to urxvt.

Maybe, but if it can't be done anyways, then why would those "most users"
request borderless operation in the first place?
