This is not the only reason to having a separate config file. xwayland
server needs to be configurable in any case. One primary example I can
think of is xwayland setting wrong (too small) input area so you need to
specify a larger mode using xorg.conf. There may or may not be other
reasons but in general, I think it's a bad idea to assume you wouldn't ever
need a separate config file. To just get it running, maybe, but there may
be several other use cases.
