I think this would need something different, an actual "human friendly"
name, like 'Dell 24"' or 'Builtin monitor'. If you'd have strings like
"DP-1", they are hardly helpful for selecting where to fullscreen.

If the protocol is loosly specified as in it's not known what format
you'll get, I don't think Xwayland can make any use of this.
