Consider having a window positioned at the top of the screen. Before
the addition of the feature to resize using the top border I was able
to select the title bar by just "throwing" my mouse up, then click and
drag the window. Now, after I "throw" my mouse up, I have to move it
back down a few pixels in order to do that.

One might argue this is not a big deal, but for a user who's used to
such a use case it might be a big deal. Fitts law applied to this use
case before, and it does not anymore. :)
