If it is delays you are concerned of, you should in fact welcome Wayland, since it takes as many of those away as possible. My limited testing shows that Wayland with compositing is actually faster(not talking about frames per second) and more responsive than a wm without compositing under Xorg.
Also Vsync and tearing seem to be much better in Wayland. Practically no tearing with much less overhead.
Because Xorg is not good at all at compositing, doesn't mean that compositing is bad in any way. And Wayland can still run fine with software rendering. Besides, if we were to not add any "layers" that we don't need, every program would be an OS too. In the case of Wayland you practically have less layers. Now, if what concerns you is not that, but something like the name of Wayland or whatever, that another issue. Wayland is Xorg developers correcting their mistakes basically.
