I'm on a foreign distro, but FWIW I've been using plain Emacs 27 with the KDE 
Plasma Wayland session on HiDPI displays for over a year, and I have no 
complaints. In fact, I didn't even realize Emacs wasn't Wayland-native until 
this thread. I took a look just now at the 'emacs-next-pgtk' package in Guix: 
it does look a bit nicer in a side-by-side comparison, but it's subtle. Either 
way, mostly Emacs just looks like Emacs. So I don't think Emacs should be a 
blocker for enabling Wayland by default.
