    Wayland and GStreamer are two completely different things.
    Firefox is moving to GTK3, and with this transition it should be easy to support Wayland.

    Note that there isn't anything different between the current situation and the future. Now DRM content is served via Flash, in the future it will be server through this DRM component. At least it is...

    I absolutely agree, there isn't anything different between the Flash plugin and the DRM component. On the contrary, the DRM component is basically a subset of what a Flash plugin or a Silverlight...

    I would like to know where you take the data to back your assumptions.
    Without any statistics, talking is useless.

    I don't have any numbers, but I think most people don't have Java installed.
    I don't think it is as easy as it sounds, you need to write much more code to handle that. And the code to handle that...

    Firefox OS isn't "just a neutered version of Android". It's completely different, they only have in common the Linux kernel and the drivers, everything else is different.
