I have two questions:

Why is almost everything using the alternatives-method but not the 
(K|G|W|X)DM programs (somthing like x-desktop-manager). It's a cool feature 
and much cleaner than starting up to 4 DM-Scripts at start-up.

Why is X startet in almost every runlevel (2,3,4,5). Sometimes I want to go 
to a multiuser non-X runlevel (also when booting the computer) though thats 
not possible without removing the Symbolic links from e.g runlevel 2 manually 
or making them kill-scripts.

PS: This is not a complaint but a question for my own understaing of the 
underlying  thoughts of the ways it was done.
