The required components should just be a fallback in case the session
didn't contain a window manager, file manager, etc. At least that is my
understanding of how they're supposed to be used. So, you should just
install an autostart file for xmonad that marks it as a window manager
via

X-GNOME-Autostart-Phase=WindowManager
X-GNOME-Provides=windowmanager

then your users should be able to switch their sessions to xmonad by
turning it on in the session capplet.
