I think the compton analogies have lost me :)

But yes if you stop lightdm it should kill all X
<> related apps, but all
services started by upstart <> or
systemd are started differently and stopped differently
the sudo stop lightdm may/may not work in future releases... I have not
really migrated to a systemd system yet...  so... this may be different
later :)

compton (and xfwm) should stop when your session stops (logout/ or a
restart of lightdm)... you can always check what is running via a task
manager/system monitor
I usually install htop so I can view tasks from a terminal as well...
but I like the terminal a lot :)  However if you have to accounts logged
in using different DE they should be running at the same time, but for
separate desktops and not interfere with each other.... I have not
really tested this out, so don't quote me on it :)
