X11, Window Managers Intel on Ubuntu's XMir:

We do not condone or support Canonical in the course of action they have chosen, and will not carry XMir patches upstream.

Ubuntu has to do virtually all its work on Xmir drivers by itself. No one else supports it.

Lets not be too dramatic given that Intel is already supporting Wayland and it is only Ubuntu as far as I know who are hell bent on having their own project - for everyone else such as Fedora, SuSE etc. they'll be using Wayland with Ubuntu eventually having to come up with some compromise for the sake of not being left out in the cold. IMHO the display server is one of the last sore points of Linux that really needs addressing and if done right along with support from GPU vendors there is a greater chance that other parts will fall into place.
