I tentatively agree, although I guess there may be desktop-oriented
daemons we may not care about. Say a desktop-oriented backup daemon,
that is sort of single user or anyway ill-suited for a multi-user

Also should we care much about Graphical UIs ? Or should we freeze early
and maintain whatever version was considered stable in the Desktop WG at
the start of the cycle ? And who is going to maintain it if we do so and
happen to have a longer term cycle than the desktop ?
