I don't know about the slowness, but you are not meant to put random
Wayland apps in place of weston-desktop-shell.

Weston-desktop-shell is a special helper client to the desktop shell
plugin of Weston, and it has special responsibilities and privileges.
If a client running in its stead does not implement those
responsibilities, the desktop does not work as expected.
