Gnome Shell, Docky 2 and AWN were the ones I had in mind specifically.
Ok, I thought about some neutral applications.
Also, what's the issue with having two WMs? It's not as if they are both running at the same time, so it doesn't make any difference in resource consumption.
It's a little non optimal IMHO, because it's easier to maintain one WM - fixing bugs, regressions and adding features then to maintain both. People will probably report bugs against Mutter and Metacity and for some newbies it can be confusing - to against which WM report a bug? Of course it's clear theory and maybe it won't make some additional problems.
