Intel and Nokia seems to be very interested in this project for MeeGo stuff and 
embedded systems (like smartphones etc.). So I think it has a quite good backing 
to be further developed. Even Qt is now ported to Wayland, I expected just 
another graphics system port but they are working on complete own architecture - 
next to win, x11, macosx (not only gfx, but events etc.)
