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.

Actually, Canonical proposed Wayland changed the way Wayland handled multitouch and Wayland didn't want to change.

So Mir now exists.

That is what happened (as far as I know/understand it).
