In that case, perhaps we should leave application control of the wm (#2) out 
of our first spec, otherwise we will end up providing two mechanisms to do 
the same thing (hints and CORBA).

Since both Gnome and KDE are committed to CORBA, I don't think there's much
point avoiding using it, and to specify a set of hints now which will be 
replaced by a CORBA interface in the future seems like a waste of effort.
