But is the X protocol a "UI Toolkit", or doesn't this tag usually
indicate that it doesn't use any toolkit at all?

Well, when the tag is name so it does include compositing window
managers, then it will also apply to compiz*, mutter (probably), kwin,
xfwm4 (?). So it could get the 7 packages we IIRC require for debtags.
For me, the question however remains whether it is more useful for the
user to have these (probably confusing, since they are overlapping)
tags, or just one.
As for compositing. I gave it a try, but actually found it pretty
useless (I actually like my windows to be opaque), and it seemed to
eat much more battery power than not using it. But that is irrelevant
Sorry if I appear to be rejecting everything. My answer is just a
comment, not any kind of decision. I'm a bit opposed to
overcategorizing things, but that is just my personal preference.
