I think the list is incomplete. For example, awesome is not in it but is
properly tagged.

A window manager is something highly personal (like an editor). You put
a lot of effort to configure it and to get used to it. If Debian didn't
had my favorite window manager, I would be quite unhappy to have to
learn one which was here before. Plus, I would need to rewamp my whole
configuration.
