Who cares? Any system that's capable of running Wayland (which requires Linux and KMS) doesn't use that part of X.Org anyway.

That's the problem, right there. We wouldn't be complaining if Wayland were just a piece of infrastructure for the X server to use — but if the toolkits are going to migrate to the native Wayland protocol, then we lose the ability to use all of our current remoting solutions (NX and xpra) other than VNC (or potentially some future slightly-improved variation of VNC, which still will have bad performance compared to things like RDP).
