What about apps that rely on CSD for part of their UI? Will those have the final word as well, or are they just screwed?

I am willing to work on patches for that on my spare time (I do expect
these to be minimal)

If the DE has the final word on whether apps are allowed to use CSD, then a lot of GNOME applications would need an alternative UI,  which is not a minimal change.
On the other hand if the app has the final word, then they already have the option to provide a different UI in different environments[0] ...
