    What extra protocols do the normal applications need to interact with that isn't part of the core Wayland protocol that would cause interoperability issues between them?

    ...well isn't that obvious? I just don't see how that changes the way applications interact with different Wayland compositors. My point was that with Wayland clients do rendering client side; They just push the buffers to the compositor so there shouldn't be much need for extra interaction between the two. The way windows are handled is specified in the Wayland protocol (creating, resizing, closing... windows).

    Not to my understanding. A single interface to ask for the application not to draw decorations like they already do on X11? Applications can obviously also use client side decorations with KWin.

    I don't know much about this subject but I'm curious.

    I'm not an expert but I think that there are still things to do: Copy/paste? Task listing? Minimising?(Not yet part of the Wayland protocol), live keymapping change.
