Yes and no. That's what XInternAtom(s) are usually there for.
However, if the window-manager of your choice decides not to
"honour" a specific Atom, you are left alone.

On the other hand, as said before, GNUstep does look for 
_WINDOWMAKER_WM_PROTOCOLS and _WINDOWMAKER_NOTICEBOARD which, as
the name suggests are specific to Window Maker. In my opinion, not
a good choice as it will close the door for other WMs. Instead,
GNUstep should use its own atoms to notify any window-manager what
it wants/needs. That way, GNUstep would really be independant.
That's IMHO, of course ...

BTW.
What is XGWM_NET supposed to be??? (XGGeneric.h, XGWMProtocols)
