Indeed, gdb-mi and desktop could work the same way:

1. before or after calling window-state-get
   save another data structure with buffer names from on all windows
   and information how to restore them;

2. before calling window-state-put create these buffers with the
   saved buffer names, so window-state-put will restore windows with the
   same buffer names.

By placeholder do you mean some default text contents to show when
tmp buffer is not restored?  Something like “tmp buffer was here”.
