Here are my first results (I'll continue testing later). I tested on Ubuntu 20.04 with Wayland desktop.

(1) The window title fonts are way too large (obviously in CSD mode). Can we reduce the font size?
We sure can if we use libdecor as bundled in FLTK. By the way, libdecor had smaller font before and increased it at some point to be in line with gnome I believe.

But it might be impossible then to use libdecor as a system package available in recent Linux versions, which is desirable I believe.

What exactly is the problem? Can we not adjust the font size when using libdecor on the application level? Is it hard coded into libdecor?

FWIW, I'm attaching a screenshot from my Ubuntu 20.04 with Wayland desktop (isn't this "Gnome" based?) with (from top to bottom):

- desktop title bar ("XTerm")
- fluid - X11 (normal "Untitled.fl")
- fluid - Wayland (large "Untitled.fl")
- xterm

The examples show the difference but if you have a smaller window and a longer title it may be more obvious that the title text may easily overflow the existing space - at least much earlier than with the normal size.

Another observation is that the system title bar is much taller although the title font is smaller. I wouldn't care about the title bar height though, but the font looks way to large - and ugly IMHO.
