    xdg-output: Remove and tweak contradicting examples · 94482cea

    The "logical size" as stated by the first paragraph corresponds to the
    monitor size in the global compositor space.
    To most clients, this is unnecessary information, and should be ignored,
    but some used the listed examples to derive information that contradicts
    the very definition of what this event communicates.
    One example tried to add surface size assumptions, which was not
    correct. Remove this part completely, clients should not try to
    configure their surface sizes from the logical size of a monitor.
    The other is the list of size examples; it tried to communicate that a
    compositor sometimes may not scale the viewport of the monitor in its
    global compositor coordinate space, in which case, the logical size
    itself matches the actual resolution. Tweak this wording to make that
    clear that it does not related to any surface size.
