I'm also concerned about all of these toolkits that are being ported to Wayland. Will applications that are linked against them still talk to X Servers? Or is this something that a developer will have to decide when they build their application?
This depends on the toolkit, obviously, but GTK+ and Qt support plugable backends. I think GTK+ 3.0 was one of the last components which were needed before something like Wayland become feasible.
Note that even if toolkit itself supports switching application can still be tied to one implementation or the other.
