why not? on a resoution-change request (in the simulated environment) the 
real-environment directwindow
disconnects, redims, and reconnects (just like it would do on a resize). the 
only prerequisite is that the real-
environment resolution should be large enough to accomodate the possible 
resolutions requested in the
simulated environment (or there should be a limit on the possible resolutions 
requestable under the
simulated envirnement, accomodating for the real-environment resolution).
