Maybe the new OpenWF Display compositor will make this possible. As I 
understand, overlays are not "standard" in KMS, but by abstracting KMS 
with OpenWFD, any vendor providing OpenWFD drivers with multiple pipes 
should be able to get overlays in the "demo" wayland compositor (as long 
as the compositor is extended to make use of multiple pipes).


I guess Ben can give more details on the target of this new compositor.
