Yes, it's exactly these little things that make a program very annoying 
even if the basic functionality is there.

They are also the same things that are hard to get right all the time, 
because the developer has to think of the big picture and tends to miss 
some of the details. Therefore things like this are the perfect 
opportunity for developers who would like to contribute to Xfce to start 
working on.

In this particular case xfce4-session needs to provide a user interface 
to start and stop Xfce components and check if they are available. Not 
entirely trivial, but not too hard to do I think.
