Default nvidia and the wayland display server

So Canonical just announced they will be moving to the wayland display server in the future:
http://digitizor.com/2010/11/05/ubun...x-for-wayland/

The idea of wayland seems great - a simple display server built on OpenGL for modern compositing desktops. Of course, it will work with all the open-source drivers without much issue. But, will it ever get support in the nvidia drivers?

I'm imagining a horrible future wherein I have to choose between hacking an X display into a wayland-distro to use my old proprietary drivers for games, or using the well supported open-source drivers that simply don't have advanced 3d capabilities.

Please tell me you have some magic in store for us nvidia
