An end user is of course free to do whatever she/he wants, it is open source after all,
but having interchangeable login managers is not something I think should be a officially
supported feature as it adds to the test matrix without significant gain. There has been a
lot of threads about general usability and stability of Fedora here, and one way of
improving on that is reducing the number of moving parts in the system to make life easier
for our testers and also make integration work by developers more focused.
I guess that depends on what you mean by supported. I don't care whether or
not they are signed off on for the release, but just that they are packaged
in Fedora and work reasonably most of the time. gdm doesn't work on (and won't
ever work for them because of graphics requirements) two of my machines and I
need to use other login managers (currently kdm). This will turn into three
machines if Fedora gets to the point I can run stock Fedora on my XO.
