Agreed if only because nice virtual desktop transition effects and
minimisation/maximisation animations (my personal interest) either
require a lot of communication between the window and compositing
managers or for them to be the same thing.
 Such as, off the top of my head, a set of window hints for
transformations, a DBUS/DCOP API or some similarly nasty solution.
