For me, with one window no tab is required.  For precedents I'll cite
Firefox and Gaim (aka Pidgin).

Ion always provides a tab (title bar) for every window.

A switch to turn it on/off is an easy way to please everyone though
:-)  But since I'm noticing a trend towards maximising screen
real-estate, I'd suggest the default is off.
