Is this a significant difference, or doesn't it essentially boil down

After all, GTK is supposed to use xlib or xcb also, afaict.

Is this a signficiant difference to being a window manager? Aren't
most composite managers also doing window management?
I see little end-user benefits here, actually.

Just my $0.02
