Flashing and tearing is an issue. The ability to give presentations with no flickering on opengl effects (and particularly fading) is important. And unless compositing is disabled, flickering and flashing are there on X, even with intel or nvidia graphics.

with compositing disabled the graphic ugliness of X is made much worse.

I have compositing disabled. No flashing. At all. Maybe if I used programs that were really slow to repaint I'd see it -- but I guess none of them are anymore, not with modern CPU speeds. Maybe back in the 90s... heck, I remember when Enlightenment was huge and bloated and slow, while now it's a bit heftier than it used to be and is renowned for being trim and fast!
