well, it depends. If the XWayland server is started from the Wayland
compositor, it should have WAYLAND_DISPLAY set because compositors
usually set it.

I'm not sure what people would think of a compositor that doesn't set
WAYLAND_DISPLAY in case the default socket is used.

I think your question is still lacking a solid answer.
