Perhaps this email should have been sent to the ubuntu-release list (if you
wanted to reach all the flavor devs) or even ubuntu-devel to reach all
interested developers.

Isn't the worst that could happen is that a user would need to reboot to
run a non-Unity session? But I'd hope that LightDM would support Wayland
too as I believe KDE and GNOME will be moving to it by default next year.

And the flavor community may need to depend on Debian instead of Canonical
to maintain X and Wayland?
