So when will we be using it as a default for distros? Last I heard weston was rejecting certain patches because it's just a testing ground. Does that mean every project is going to write there own version of weston? Sounds like we are starting all over again. Or did I mis-understand.

It was the plan earlier, but Weston is definitely more than "just an example" now. Kinda like "nothing-serious-like-GNU" Linux.

Don't rely on Phoronix for your news :P

GNOME shell will takeover some parts what Weston is doing AFAIK (+it was a logical thing to do). Making GNOME 3 fully work (on screen keyboard, accessibility, etc) will provide enough guidance on which things are lacking. Seems better to focus on the needs of current DEs (KDE, GNOME) rather than making another.
