It's not about kdm, but really kde. I don't really care for such a thing for 
display managers because it is really unlikely that more than one installed 
is really needed by anyone. Personally, I prefer wdm. kdm is not installed, 
neither is gdm or xdm.

Can kwin actually run by itself? Even if yes, yould it make sense?

I'm somewhat afraid to install gnome because it is really hard to wipe from 
disk again ;-)

The thing is: kde2 is default x-session-manager, xfce is default 
x-window-manager. This might make sense in gnome (it could actually start as 
default x-session-manager and use the default x-window-manager) but KDE2 does 
not have this capability, so registering as x-s-m does not really make sense 
to me.
