on Wayland applications cannot take any edge anyway as they don't know their position. Which means that technically edge swipe is constrained to the compositor.

Only for fullscreen windows the app could start to do assumptions.

So given this technical constraint I would not suggest to restrict ourselves for the notebook case.
