What about apps that rely on CSD for part of their UI? Will those have the

The same as now without a compositor :)

If the DE has the final word on whether apps are allowed to use CSD, then a
lot of GNOME applications would need an alternative UI,  which is not a
minimal change.

The DE doesn't have the final word, the DE just sets a hint indicating
GTK to prefer CSD or SSD.

On the other hand if the app has the final word, then they already have the
option to provide a different UI in different environments[0] ...

Yeap, that's a god idea, but that's for menubar, I am referring to decorations.
