I think we'd like to see the Fedora community figure out its position
on the subject— so that it can tell the Wayland developers "If you
continue on this track, then as things stand, Fedora will not be
making it a part of the default Fedora install".

If that is indeed the position of the Fedora community then it would
carry a lot more weight in someone's planning than individual people
whining on the wayland list.
