The proper (and at least semi-documented way) is to source your .profile in
your .xsession file, or put equivalent logic in it. Yes, this is not really
very good, but that's how xdm has always worked.

Rearchitecting xdm to do something different would be an upstream issue, and
probably not one likely to get much traction. (This is why the desktops always
replace xdm with their own thing.)
