I have also been wishing recently that Slackware had a tiling window manager included. Of all of them, I would agree that i3 is probably the best choice, due to it's accessibility, great documentation, and comparatively few dependencies.
I really like Xmonad myself (as you may be able to tell by my sig!), but it has a lot of dependencies that those who are not planning to work with Haskell might not wish to include.
I think it would be nice to have i3 around.
