 This is not even an issue afaik. But we need to make sure one window 
manager will always be compliant. E (my favorite wm btw) is not fully!

 So the thing is not to impose a window manager but rather to have one 
for sure! Of course, any other window managers can comply if they 

 Say, what if all window managers started not to comply with gnome? So 
we have a nice panel but no WM????

 No we need one fully-compliant wm and make sure it stays that way!

 Good then, but they are not compliant. I can see it on my desktop. 
But maybe it's Gnome and not E. I don't know or care. I just want to 
have for sure a fully-compliant window manager for gnome that I can 
use! I want to use Gnome as desktop!

 Neither do I! So these little compliance problems should disappear! 
 I will personnally start submitting bug reports to E and Gnome about 
all those little weird things!

 That isn't even an issue for me. I don't another KDE, I want Gnome! 
But I want to make sure we have ONE FULLY COMPLIANT WINDOW MANAGER
