I'm all for [3] (where "processes" are "xfce4-session") and against [1] 
and [2]. I'd call it a baseline Xfce4-systemd integration and it should 
be available and supported out-of-the-(Xfce)-box.

With that working you could proceed to deeper integration [1-3] but IMHO 
[1] and [2] should still be entirely optional.
