That looks like the bind operation to me. Why do you need a
new protocol?

How do you propose clients would communicate their intentions to
compositors? I may be misunderstanding.

So, you are OK with being asked *every time* if you accept that VLC
is trying to go fullscreen? I most definitely am not :D

No, the compositor can remember your choice.

(following what chrome and firefox are doing is likely a good idea).

I agree, permission management on Firefox is good.
