The problem: everything has to be in the compositor, which means you
either implement the whole display server or nothing. The concept of
window managers is non-existent under Wayland.

OK, I am getting the picture now:

I was under the impression from Daniel Stone's writings that wayland was only part of the rendering chain. Daniel had made the point that X was this horror of a monolithic bit of code (which he had spent too much of his life on) and that wayland would allow the compartmentalisation of the code.

From what has been said here it seems that the monolith is back.
