Yes, splitting the wm into several programs creates a mess. If you wanted to
implement a banana-taskbar-pager, you would have to build it into the wm.
However, this spec is meant to help window managers interact with 
Windows/Mac-like desktop environments, so a lot of assumptions have been made
about the types of window we expect to encounter.
