I also started using EXWM recently and it works without any issues
for me (actually it works better than I expected).

However, I use the default login manager (elogind) from
%desktop-services, which picks up EXWM automatically for me.  I don't
manually start the X server, which is why I didn't previously chime in.

FWIW, here's the relevant snippet from my /etc/config.scm:

(packages (append
           (map specification->package
(services (append
           (list (service xfce-desktop-service-type)
                  (xorg-configuration (keyboard-layout keyboard-layout))))

You'll notice that I also install XFCE alongside EXWM, just in case (and
because I used it before I started configuring EXWM).
