I think what's missing is a concrete demonstration to point to of
remoting of a Wayland native client window to wrap our heads around
how different (easy or hard) it is. When the time comes to introduce
initial wayland packages into Fedora having the ability to demonstrate
a native toy  Wayland client rendered remotely (and securely from say
a virtualized host) is probably something to shoot for.
