You could create a ~/.xserverrc with the following:

exec /usr/bin/XWin -notrayicon [OTHER_ARGS] "$@"

The only caveat is that would apply to *all* X sessions, not just the
multiwindow session.  An alternative is to copy the XWin Server shortcut
and add " -- -multiwindow -notrayicon" (without the quotes) right after
startxwin in the command.
