I'm not entirely certain if you expected them to be, but indeed this is
certainly not the case.

Wayland is a new architecture that has [partially broken and buggy]
backwards compatibility plugins for x11 applications, while x11 is not
forward compatible with Wayland protocol applications nor will it ever be.
Something like WayDroid does not work under x11 and simply can't.

The fact that QT applications and KDEs compositor can run on both is only
due to two completely separate code paths that ideally the developers would
like to merge into a Wayland only product.
