Will the desktop icon support in Thunar support the same things that Xfdesktop SVN currently supports?
      * No icons; not able to get focus; still managing and drawing
        desktop; mode?
      * Icons for minimized windows mode?
      * All the same background drawing preferences (gradient, image
        style, image list, image brightness)?
      * You mention XDG menu integration. Does that mean that the Thunar
        desktop will have an XDG right click menu?

You don't have to answer all of the question (really, you don't have to
answer any of them at all if you don't want to - it's your choice); you
may not have decided every detail yet, after all.

Also something to consider, if xfdesktop should get deprecated in future
versions of Xfce, is what to do with the menu panel plugin.
