MouseOver Texts

I noticed that mouseover texts for linux are the same for each app I  
use. So it seems to be part of the compositor/of X11 to show  

In wayland protocol, i did not find a request to show a hover text or  
Is there a plan to add such functionality?
A hover text would at least need the following Attributes:
  - Text (or img buffer)
  - Position (or maybe mouse position)
  - Timeout (compositor site? enable an interrupt request?)

I think hover boxes and notification panels can be treated the same  
because they both are placed in an overlay, they both have a content  
and position/size.

What do you think about?
