Definitely not =)

Technically, you should *only* have
exec gnome-session

And choose your window manager using the control panel.

If you don't want to use gnome-session, then the method above is
incorrect still, as it won't progress past the panel. Try:
panel &
exec wmaker

And the plain answer to your question is to spend a few days in each
wm and choose whichever suits you best.
