Jonathan: I didn't receive your emails (not the first time), only
Tobias' quote.

My personal use-case: I use EXWM most of the times, but it's nice to
have an extra desktop environment for:

- Testing software in a different environment, e.g. XDG integration,
- Making FOSDEM presentations :)  (Works for other presentations too!)
- Letting non-techie friends use my system.

For the above I don't need any GNOME program but GNOME shell and Nautilus.

A lighter system has the benefits of:

- being easier on Internet bandwidth,
- updating faster.
