And MythTV (native) Wayland support
is a work in progress.  TTBOMK there
is currently no developer who is focusing
on Wayland development at the moment.

It should be noted that while X11 on
Wayland (using XWayland) can work
for many cases, there are various
issues about GPU acceleration support
depending on your GPU and platform
versions.

As more distros and DE's are sunsetting
native X11 support (in favor of using
XWayland for apps still using X11)
some of the issues may get resolved
over time, although there are some
issues that are stated to require
protocol changes to Wayland, and
those take time to be accomplished.
