I'm pretty sure it's possible to use an OpenGL/ES enabled X-Server as a back-end for
Wayland. The X-Server could be stripped down to it's minimal requirements for the only
client (wayland) on top of it. You wouldn't even need to bother with xevents, because
you can access input devices directly through their kernel interfaces.

However, running Wayland on top of an X-Server contradicts the architectural
picture of replacing the X-Server :-)
