It’s mostly on a case-by-case basis.

An important criterion to decide whether to add an optional dependency
or feature is its popularity over extra-space ratio.

For instance, I suspect Wayland is not used much with Guix.  Thus, we
should check how adding Wayland support affects the size of Mesa’s
closure, using ‘guix size’:

If the overhead is “small”, that’s fine; otherwise, that may suggest
leaving it disabled in the default Mesa.
