starting X is an issue with permisions.  The default expects X to launch
from systemd

Sounds good enough to me, as long as at init the system lands on VT1 at 1st, and not any random VT. Some time back it used to be that the VT finally showed at init was any (random?). Not sure if there's a way to make sure it's always VT1. If that can be configured, it's good enough, and there's no need for a DM at all...

You want to login at tty and have the wm/desktop open up right away, you don't want to see the tty and have a DM show you a login screen or you want to boot and go straight into the DE without any login involved?  The last is what you commonly find on a live image.  Since it works on MATE-OpenRC  iso it should be able to work on an installed system as well.
