    Because they are window managers, not desktop environments.

    From the blog post:
    There will be a follow-up post about Window managers, so if you’re interested in that, subscribe to my feed and you’ll be updated when it’s published!

    This is wrong.
    1. I am talking specifically about DR17, not 16
    2. It can be used as a WM, yes and it is originally a WM, but provides additional modules which can be used as a sibstitute for other desktop environments. Don't forget the EFL foundation libraries.
