Never gonna happen, man. There's no way you can foresee and code for
everyone's needs. I'm catching on to this point you're heading towards,
though: e doesn't intend to suit everyone's needs.

If a compositor implementation can never be sufficient to express
peoples' needs, how could an arbitrary protocol be better? Same
complexity problem.

(And, as far as the 'but what if a compositor implementation isn't
good' argument goes - don't use bad compositors.)
