Noticed some Mir thread @ ubuntu-devel.

GNOME will go Wayland, don't rely on our X support.

And now also the other message

I suspect X support for GNOME will be around for a while primarily so Red

GNOME community are invited to the Mir discussions moving forward, as are
the KDE/Kubuntu community.

Primary focus for GNOME will be Wayland. There are a few things that
Wayland does not support that X did support. This will result in having
to do things differently. See e.g. the various forms of 'deprecate' is
mentioned on as well as

Various things will be changed. Eventually GDM will use Wayland, but
then still allow X sessions to be started. In short term, GDM won't use
Wayland but allows Wayland sessions. See

Due to primary focus on Wayland, the X support in GNOME shell will
probably not be at the same level as Wayland (see links above for
background reasoning). Secondly, GDM should always allow to start X
sessions (start X based desktop environments).
