As I understood it, the plan is to implement classic X11 over the top
of wayland - ie. wayland becomes the "graphics driver".

What disturbs me most about wayland is that if it becomes adopted
directly by popular desktop systems, then (apart from breaking
the network independence of application and user that is the
primary feature of X11) the current Linux/X11 calibration and profiling
(ie. VideoLUT loading and ICC profile registration as an atom) will
probably be left by the wayside, and have to be re-implemented
(re-standardised) all over again.
