FWIW in v8 and possibly earlier liveResizing is always on, and the 
liveResizing stack property has been deprecated.

OS X, Windows, and Linux don't offer two modes for resizing; that was 
allowed for legacy Mac OS 9 apps using older APIs under OS X.

In recent OS X versions all windows are expected to resize in real-time, 
as with the other OSes, so there's no longer a need for this property.

Indeed, in discussing this with Mark it seems it would be somewhat 
tricky to try to provide behavior specific to older OSes in a newer OS 
that doesn't support it.
