wayland hosted VM

I have noticed that running a GLES application through the xserver is
considerably slower
Basically, I go from 60+ to 20 fps.

This raises a smiler concern wrt running VM's with a wayland/egl stack.

I imagine a VM display will act similar to the xserver architecturally.
If that is so, is it envisioned that VMs will be able to utilize the
GPU (i.e., write shaders)
when running on wayland?

Has there been discussion on this?
If, so, please point me in the right direction.
