    No no no, there's no tearing in Wayland. Every frame is perfect

This should be much simpler and as Wayland has a lot of X developers, I'm guessing their assessment is right.
      As the XWayland behavior is the same as xorg in macosx and windows I suppose the behavior already is supported by xorg and has been optimized in many years?

          This is a big milestone as I understand. I'm extremely pleased with the pace of development of Wayland & GNOME this year.

            Code:
                          wow
                                 gnome
                                               wow
                   such alignment
                                 ready for production
                          such obscure issue
                                               nobody will ever see
                          wow
            I shouldn't stay up so late.

            tl; dr:
            You can have X running while trying it on a tty with "gnome-session --session=gnome-wayland". tty switching doesn't work, but you can "pkill gnome-session" and it'll drop you back to the tty. But when doing that it also killed pulseaudio and kded4 in X was a bit broken and hotkeys still don't work even after starting kdeinit4 again.
