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.

As for the other guy, no it doesn't mean graphics libraries will have to support two back ends. Quite the opposite really. If everybody but Ubuntu goes to Wayland, it's on Ubuntu to handle the support or become increasingly irrelevant.
