I've got difficulties to completely understand your whole mail, perhaps

However, the windows managers and desktop environments might need 3D
support and similar things, if you're using special desktop effects, so
it can be, that a desktop environments needs this, e.g. 3D acceleration,
as being provided, but it's provided by X (for some users perhaps by
Wayland instead of X).
For your Ubuntu Studio Xfce shouldn't need 3D acceleration or any other
Xfce can be used with or without the proprietary NVIDIA driver.
What kernel do you run exactly? What's the output of
If it's a PREEMPT RT, than it's very likely that the proprietary driver
can't be used with the kernel.
If it's a full PREEMPT kernel with threadirqs activated, the proprietary
driver should work.
Any output for
