" Is it really that difficult to give Mir the same courtesy, and accept that its reasons for existence might not just be political?"
That comparison weakens your plea
http://0pointer.de/blog/projects/why.html explains why systemd was started and has the technical details of how the architecture is different and really the inverse of upstart and they still talked to upstart developers before developing an alternative.
If there are similar technical reasons for Mir or if Mir developers talked to Wayland and tried collaborating, feel free to provide pointers.
