Concerning own decoration we have implemented

Excellent. The protocol looks like it'll do just fine.

I think especially for compositors like sway that can be very helpful. For Qt 
we implemented support in our QPT plugin for Plasma. So if sway wants to use 
it I can give you pointers on how to use it in your own QPT plugin (if you 
don't have one yet how to create it) and to use it to force QtWayland to not 
use the client side decorations.

I would love to see something like that. Can we work on a model that
would avoid making users install qt to install Sway? Honestly I'd like
to just set an environment variable to turn off CSD where possible, for
both Qt and GTK. I'm still trying to avoid forcing a toolkit on users.
