>Compiz is Desktop Agnostic,

Which is sometimes a problem: in Mandriva, Compiz activated the cube effect when your mouse was in the higher right corner, which is fine in Gnome which has a toolbar in the upper layer, but which sucks *a lot* with KDE: when you want to close a window, half the time the cube effect would activate..

Lack of integration/coordination between layers as usual in Linux.

A minor problem that can be easily fixed instead of reinveting the boiled water.

A minor problem?
For you probably, but for the non-technical user who doesn't know how to display properly the wallpaper, it's a big problem..
And the point is that it wasn't fixed in the distribution.

This is configurable so I don't see the problem. Maybe the default suck but that has very little todo with compiz being desktop agnostic.
