Now dwm draws statusbar for you (if you use dwm). It also runs dmenu
and st/urxvt/xterm too. Most of global user keybindings just run
commands so it is ok if these keybindings will be window manager

Or if you disagree, then keybindings that run dmenu and terminal
emulator should be removed from dwm code and placed somewhere else.
But I think it will just make things more complex.
