My stance is that the WM is managing the windows and that it
takes care of window selection (alt+tab for instance).
Exposé is just another way of selecting your windows.

I've tried Compiz, but I found i liked metacity and xfwm4 better
as window managers. 

A bigger (and completely different question) is: Does XFCE
as a project want to have more bling, or does it want to 
leave that to Compiz? Or could we re-use the plugins for
Compiz (probably not).
