See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=652439

We could use a Hint saying "please delegate these channels".
a) DelegateChannelsTo (s) : if not the empty string, Handler should delegate those channels to this Client
b) DelegatePreferredHandler (b): if True, redirect to the PreferredHandler of the ChannelRequest

I think I'd go for a) as it's more flexible.

(a) and (b) are actually the same since we have to provide a PreferredHandler anyway. Thus (b) is better because there are not two potentially conflicting preferences.

+              unhandled channel. This allows requesting clients to always

ITYM “It is assumed that Mission Control will correctly pass an unhandled channel to the preferred handler”. Otherwise ++
