mpwm is dead. I resurrect it from time to time for testing but that's about
it. The above error should be fixable by using XFreeEventData instead

I don't think there's a plan as such. I know there's people working on GTK,
there was a compiz change floating around a while ago (not sure if that's
up-to-date) and there's various people using it for their app.

the XI2 wiki page is now but I intend to use it
more for tracking missing features.

strictly speaking, clipboards are handled in the client (though with the use
of the ICCCM specs). the server doesn't really have a say there.
