This is my vote. Exposure is good.

There are already bugs for updating the Screen saver and Composite
extensions. I made them blockers for 6797. (Some of these we can
cherry pick from Alp's branch.)
Is the only new proto development happening in the git repositories
xorg-proto-*? If so, we should also check RandR and Fixes for changes.
A process question: How could we better encourage folks to keep
xcb-proto in sync with xorg/proto? Are there sections of the Xorg
dev guide we should update? Ostensibly, it should be
easier for people to test extensions in XCB than in Xlib.
