    Does anyone know: will it work to have a Wayland compositor, for example KWin/5 running on an Intel chip and something like a game in XWayland with the propietary driver on my Optimus GT630M? I'm not sure if I've explained it good enough but I think you get the point.

      From the mailing list message, it appears that you should be able to specify driconf settings which allow offloading arbitrary applications to any GPU device:

      For example, run the weston compositor on one device:
      <driconf>
      <device screen="0" driver="init">
      <application name="Weston" executable="weston">
      <option name="wanted_device_id_path_tag" value="pci-0000_01_00_0" />
      <option name="blit_if_different_device" value="false" />
      </application>
      </device>
      </driconf>
