In that case, the Window Manager can already perform DoS attacks by simply never mapping the window. Similarly, the Compositing Manager can DoS the system by never painting anything. Given that one generally starts a Window Manager/Compositing Manager at the start of the session, and that only one of either can be running at a time, there shouldn't be any way for such a DoS to occur. In any case, we're not likely to change how window management works at this point; toolkits have dealt with re-directed configuration for over thirty years at this point. -- -keith
