    No, this is for Tizen.

    This makes a Wayland compositor look like the bloated middleman...

    Despite being a "smaller" DE in terms of developers, users, etc... it seems like Enlightenment consistently has the best/fastest updates. At this point, I may switch to it simply because I'm so in awe of the developers.

    There are things that are a bit hairy in some areas -more importantly the File manager- but in general you can use it everyday without a problem. And you get an awesome Terminal if you are into the command line thing.

    nope - not for tizen only. for general support of kernel kms/drm display. tizen is one target of course.

    Correct me if I'm wrong because I could be wrong, butI think the Enlightenment compositor use EFL,and this might be what it will use to run as a standalone Wayland compositor on hardware supported by DRM/KMS drivers.,

    otherwise it can use the FB backend in EFL on hardware that isn't supported. (virtualbox...)
