Can you elaborate on how the WM could crash outside the session and would
still be expected to be saved along with the session?

If session managed, the WM be automatically restarted in case of unexpected
termination. If not restarted by the session manager then it's a bug in the
session manager that needs to be fixed.

If outside the session, then it means it's not session managed and not a
bug with the session manager anyway.

The general rule is trying to hide bugs by adding complexity is usually not
the right approach to the problems.
