A seat has two identifiers, the physical name and the logical name. The
physical name is summarized as the list of devices a process on the same
physical seat has access to. The logical seat name is the seat name for a
logical group of devices. A compositor may use that to create additonal
logical group of devices. A compositor may use that to create additional
seats as independent device sets. Alternatively, a compositor may limit
itself to a single logical seat, leaving a second compositor to manage
devices on the other logical seats.
