Sounds good in principle, but in practice have you ever try to run
Google Earth with Compiz?
Sometimes "standards" take a while get standardized.
I like many things about Ion that are very interesting (inspiring for
some Rev script editor/object browser ideas), but givens its, shall we
say, "mixed" development history I can't help but wonder if it's really
the best test case to use here: the author has since abandoned open
source and Linux altogether, and no distro ships with it as its default
choice (I don't think any even include it). It's a nice work, but I'm
not sure it's the best choice for testing "standards".
