Is there someone working on an glamor DDX for XWayland?

It would certainly be useful to have a glamor DDX as a fallback, lowering the need to install other DDX and the burden of the maintenance.

The xf86-video-ati and xf86-video-nouveau XWayland branches are becoming old (For example they won't work without some changes on last XWayland)

I tried to update xf86-video-ati (I have a radeonsi card), but there is a problem because somewhere I need to give the handle of the newly created window to XWayland, but glamor didn't managed to import the Pixmap before and then created an glamor Pixmap I can't access (or I don't know how I can).

An XWayland glamor DDX should reduce maintenance cost, and I believe it would simplify life for users.
