if we don't want to give the user the possibility to disable, we don't need an 
option to enable/disable.

Let's turn the question around: why should the user be able to enable or 
disable compositing? What would be a valid reason to do so? And keep in mind: 
with Wayland it will be impossible to turn off compositing, same in GNOME 
Shell, Unity and Mac OS X (don't know about Windows).
