Window positions under wayland

Please don't close this discussion on account of something someone
else said. Wouldn't it be better for users, compositors, and apps if there
was a way to manage window positions, but the compositor could choose
not to let them? The best apps typically have an option in the preferences
for windows to remember their positions, and window managers are given
the option to move/resize windows as they please. Window managers can
then let users decide weather they want to let windows choose their own
size/position or stay put (such as in tiling window managers). Why wouldn't
Wayland benifit from a similar system? (I'm assuming that the reason you
said "for better or for worse" was just so everyone could stop talking
than because you actually wouldn't mind having a worse system in place)
