It's not tied to GNOME. XGL is just the very basic rendering infrastructure (same as X), and Compiz is a fully pluggable compositing manager. What we know as window managers essentially become 'decorator' plugins or libraries for Compiz to render. They just didn't bother to write a Qt/KDE based plugin for decorations (but there's a spot for it in the tree already).
It is, oddly enough, exactly what you demand. :-)
