Thanks, I'll look into it.

I think we should use "Window Manager" when we refer to a wm implementing 
EWMH, and "window manager" when we refer to any wm (mainly in the 
introduction, I guess).

We don't have a separate namespace for constants. Its similar for the

Yes, this is only ever set by the wm, never by the client (who doesn't 
even know whats visible, thats the point). 
"If the Window Manager displays a window name other than _NET_WM_NAME the 
Window Manager MUST set this to the title displayed in UTF-8 encoding."

"The window manager MUST keep this property updated to reflect the actions 
which are currently "active" or "sensitive" for a window."
