Your needs are vastly different from many others who just go with the flow and want something that obeys "normal" UI conventions. I wish you best of luck in maintaining your custom workflow but I imagine that those capabilities extract a non-zero cost in design and maintenance that has a negative effect on everyone else who uses the graphics stack. I could be wrong about your specific needs but certainly the X designers have spoken about this topic at some length.

How do those features leverage some special about the graphics *stack*? The monitor behavior is basically "give me monitor borders, not one single canvas" (games will likely need this) and the decorations is "allow me to suppress CSDs" which KDE is expected to require anyways. The only real problem is that I won't get my specific features from Weston, KWin, or Shell, but that was expected.

The apps I'll need to replace (directly) are setxkbmap, xsetroot, xset, xrdb, xcompose, clock, xautolock (all of which should have equivalents in Wayland), xmobar, xmonad, feh (backgrounds), sxiv (image viewer), and dmenu. The others that I use are all using toolkits which should have Wayland backends. The largest application here that will need to be written is "WMonad".
