I am not sure if such a race-condition is possible. Because weston-ivi-shell-user-interface
is launched always as weston startup. It is a helper client. The helper client then create all UI surfaces
and sends the UI ready request to the compositor. It is not possible to start another wayland application with launchers, before UI is ready.
If someone tries to start a wayland application on parallel with weston startup. It can always end up badly,
if some kind of a synchronization mechanism is not used, e.g: sd-notify. Therefore, I think it is ok.

I am ok with that.
