Please file a feature request for a new coordinate system. DATA, NORMAL, and DEVICE are simply not enough, and it's always a pain if you have your beautiful plot set up for 1 panel on the page/window, and then you want to combine several panels to a page. Something like 

    XYOUTS, 0.5, 0.96, 'My title', /WINDOW, charsize=2.5

would be just wonderful. And if you want your title to appear across the page regardless of how many plots there are, you use NORMAL coordinates.
