What Daniel said. My mistake for putting fuel on the fire and explaining why
Wayland does not have explicit positioning. I hoped to provide some explaining
of the history of pain that led up to things being this way (and there are
decades of experience per experienced Wayland developer who supports this).
We've all done everything from display servers to window managers to
compositors, toolkits, applications and more for many decades.

Solve the corner cases not already solved. Don't do "give me a sledgehammer to
break the world with" with explicit positioning.
