The hypothetical libdeco is no solution, we both know every toolkit will have their own solution, as will every app started before toolkits get the functionality.
    "Easily bypassed OR unimportant."

    I don't really care about that. There are already tons of inconsistencies - just try running a GNOME app next to a KDE one and try to count up all the different inconsistencies you can find. Adding the window decorations to that list seems like a pretty unimportant addition to me.

    And within GTK/Qt apps, i think the toolkit would provide a pretty good job at keeping things consistent. There would obviously be some issues that would pop up, but again - i don't really care.

    Other people apparently do, so I'm not necessarily against KWin providing SSDs. I just personally don't find it important.
