The only difference is that you *have* to use X11 font rendering while
you do not necessarily have to run above mentioned apps directly in dwm
(yes, nested X server with or without a wm seems like a cool solution).

So the above is a fallacy. And no, it's not only about displaying weird
firefox window titles. There's also the status bar, tag names and such.
Displaying unicode (which solution to settle on is another discussion)
is not bloating but is realizing the basic fact that 7bit ASCII is too
limited for a worldwide dwm audience.
