We shouldn't mention a custom protocol. That's something that only someone 
who's already writing a Wayland compositor would be interested in, so this 
possibility should be mentioned only in that context.

The QWindow and top-level QWidget documentation should be modified to indicate 
that an application may not have access to global positioning or anything 
outside its windows (no screen captures, for example). That may also apply to 
APIs for grabbing mouse and keyboard.
