Metacity as a compositing manager

Would it be a good idea to plan to use Metacity as the default compositing
manager for Ubuntu instead of compiz in the future?

Compiz seems mostly unnecessary. If metacity was used, it would be easier on
the machine and work for people who don't have the hardware for compiz.
Anyone who wants all the exra effects can still install compiz, but for
almost everyone, shouldn't metacity be fine?
