Not really, sorry. I haven't worked with desktops enough to know what they need. You might get some idea, if you take the EWMH spec and assume everything is still missing. You might also add ICCCM, but AFAIU that is less relevant here, since the display server and window manager are the same process, and they actually contain policy, too, which the X server does not.

Also, I haven't looked at what the KDE, Gnome or other specific desktop projects have done, all I know at this time is the wayland demos.
thanks for the answer
