Of course I don't think it's a purely technical decision from Canonical. Also, I don't necessarily think it is a good decision, either for them or for Linux as a whole. But I do think that many good things can come out of it: new ideas, new code, encouragement for Wayland devs to finish their job.
As to the downside, there may be bad consequences, but I don't see how we may end up with three (or four!) different, incompatible display servers. Either they will be compatible somehow or only one will survive. Hey, even GNOME and KDE have agreed to a lot of standards, making our life easier.
