I'm not a DE or DM user, so I'm know very little about them. But I
don't understand the concept of "user configuration" for a DM.
Wouldn't that be like a user configuring /etc/issue, the login prompt
or /etc/motd ?

Is this what is being described at
Is that the sort of configuration you would expect, or would you
want something different? Are you perhaps talking about which file,
like .xsession, .xsessionrc, .Xsession, .xinitrc, etc gets executed
when you login through the DM?
