I understand the intention here, and it's a good idea, but the new
switch doesn't really help at this point. It probably would have made
sense back in February when the Wayland patches went in.

Distros can just remove libwayland-egl at install time to get the same
effect, and it's not a problem to require wayland-1.15 for 18.2.
