If you have picked up the clamour not so long ago when a rumour made the rounds that remote OpenGL support was being removed from X11 you know there's a whole rather vocal community that relies on X11 for their work.

OTOH, I know one of the XQuartz maintainers would be very much in favour of a Wayland port to Mac because according to him that would allow the use of X11 applications without needing XQuartz (which is a bit of a hack in terms of implementation).
And Wayland support is "almost" possible on Mac, IIRC there are just 2 missing kernel (sysctl) routines that prevent building Wayland 1.12 .
