I've just subscribed to this list only to give my feedback about 
EGLStreams into XWayland, but I can't give any real review, only opinions.

I don't know what the policies are, but I feel like including EGLStreams 
is a way to endorse NVidia proprietary drivers.

If NVidia is really interested in having their drivers work with 
Wayland, they could contribute more to the Unix device memory allocation 
API. If they aren't interested, why should we bother?

I know, including EGLStreams speeds up Wayland adoption, but it slows 
down free software adoption.

It's not like Wayland is a forced choice: who wants/needs to use the 
NVidia proprietary driver can still do so using classic X. I fail to see 
use cases where users are forced both to use both Wayland and the NVidia 
proprietary drivers, so I think it's a good time to let users know what 
free software is supposed to be.

I hope I'm not too off topic with my opinion.

Thanks anyway for the good work.
