For acpid - AFAIK, this is only a warning. So OK if you also put the warning 
text that you see, or describe the additional functionality (in terms of 
visble effects on your monitor) that is not present in Xorg without acpid.

For the composite extension - this is a trivial configuration option, best 
described by mentioning it, and also documenting the need for a "composite 
manager" application that uses it (examples: xfwm4, kwin). Some speedup 
tricks (such as using EXA instead of XAA on Radeon-class cards) would also 
be nice.

There is one more AIGLX configuration issue that I want to mention: never 
load the GLcore module. See http://bugs.debian.org/394716 for the details.
