I agree with you. This should really be DE independent. I can see it in
some place like kdbus with some interface that if an application shares an
API with some requirements, kdbus should enforce them. Compositors/DE's can
in this case register some kind of callback to when kdbus need user
authorization/authentication and then just provide the necessary UI.
