    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>
