My point was that currently it is not used by GDM. When users select
Failsafe, they get a plain X environment (cool!). At least in my
config (GDM 2.2.0).

You will still find people that will not want your forced system. IE,
I do not use main menu in a panel (keybinding or MB3), nor logout nor
control center launcher (they come in the menu, and I already can
launch it). But do not worry, I will find ways to workaround your
limits, or just move to other system, it seems my doom.
