that the event is optional, then the compositor _must_ send the event.

xdg_output::description is an optional event because the spec mentions
it. On the other hand, xdg_output::name is mandatory because the spec
has no a single word about it being optional.


Pragmatically we know what every toolkit does and it's fine in reality so no
need to panic, but we should fix it.

I'll add some overload in Display for kwin to request the version number or
