Please correct me if I'm wrong, but the only reason I'm seeing for 
having a separate config file on Xwayland is to set a different video 
driver, in particular the wlshm.

In that case a reasonable solution is to make Xwayland guess whether a 
fallback is needed and automatically sets it internally. We discussed 
awhile ago it and maybe you want to enhance the patch I started:

let me know if you need some help.
