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.

AFAIK, one of the possible transition plans is for them to simply provide EGL support and leaving all the rest up to wayland. This should theoretically reduce the driver maintenance burden.

ATM Nvidia reimplements large sections of Xorg in order to have a working display manager. Amd uses more of the existing X infrastructure (probably why their driver is of lower quality and more likely to break).
