I've been using startx on stretch for a couple months, with no problems.
I login as my non-root user on tty1, and run 'startx', and it just works.

This is on two different machines, both using Intel graphics.  Here's one
of them:

wooledg:~$ uname -a
Linux wooledg 4.9.0-3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.30-2 (2017-06-12) x86_64 GNU/Linux

wooledg:~$ lspci -nn | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation HD Graphics 530 [8086:1912] (rev 06)

wooledg:~$ sudo dmesg | grep firmware
[    3.796473] [drm] GuC firmware load skipped
