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.

The point was that Mir will not be functional and available before wayland, because they're still using an x-compatibility layer.
If their NIH syndrome were not so bad, they could have just helped with wayland, and it would have been fully functional way before mir will be.
