 From reading Composite and Axe (please point me to latest good docs, 
the wiki has deadbeef)
a lot of your new thinking makes window heirarchy mutable, need to 
understand forward migration of
existing protocol. Do you provide some locking so apps and wm's don't  
"walk the plank"?

that are currently in isolation.
