more centered around the "mobile" side(superphones/tablets and such)
Absolute rubbish. Wayland is designed around the requirements of modern graphics hardware, and around the ways in which usage of X has changed over the years -- unless you think that all usage of Gtk and Qt is on smartphones and tablets, that is (which would, of course, be wrong).
If Wayland is F/OSS
? You haven't even done that
much research? Googling for 'Wayland', clicking on the first link, and clicking on 'Wayland FAQ' tells you as much in the second FAQ item.
a couple of crazy gits decide to include the pertinent features in X itself
Given that most of the 'pertinent features' consist of getting X out of the way, something you can't do to an X server and still call it an X server, I'd say that this feature is self-contradictory (or, alternatively, has already been done: we call it DRI.)
