There is xserver-xorg-legacy, is that not sufficient?

Together with…

$ cat /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config 
# Xwrapper.config (Debian X Window System server wrapper configuration file)
# This file was generated by the post-installation script of the
# xserver-xorg-legacy package using values from the debconf database.
# See the Xwrapper.config(5) manual page for more information.
# This file is automatically updated on upgrades of the xserver-xorg-legacy
# package *only* if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of that
# package.
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command as root:
#   dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg-legacy

… this suffices for the usual “exec startx” scenario at least
on bullseye. Did something change so that is no longer enough?
