The compositor can be a standalone display server running on Linux kernel modesetting and evdev input devices, an X application, or a wayland client itself. The clients can be traditional applications, X servers (rootless or fullscreen) or other display servers.

I never really minded the desync between window borders and window contents. I considered it a necessary (and possibly even desirable) alternative to the risk of jerky resizing.


Agreed, then again IMHO what follows CSD is a BeOS-like design to have one thread of each application dedicated to the GUI, so that you can be reasonably sure that resizing will be smooth.
This is unlikely that this'll happen on Linux as it would be a big change but who knows?
