Currently I don't care about wayland one way or another, I am just going to keep on using awesomeWM for the foreseeable future. But what I don't get is why tear-free/every frame perfect is considered so great by wayland people that they made it the centerpiece. As long as it isn't tearing constantly or something, who cares?
It's not as much "centerpiece" as "made possible" by wayland. I don't really get why we should not remove tearing if we can? I'm not sure in what ways tearing is better?
