RHEL, Fedora, and Ubuntu use Wayland right now. X Windows is basically
in maintenance mode. The proposal I was referencing suggested moving
the accessibility layer lower in the X windows stack. If you started
working on that now, it probably wouldn't matter because X Windows will
have a small market share. (If it even worked which as I said is
unlikely because of the way libraries make use of X Windows.)

But if you think you can do better, I'd be happy to be proven wrong. I
just don't think Wayland is bleeding edge anymore.
