That's the problem... they don't know what they want. On one hand, they say they want their own display server because they can tailor it for the needs of Unity and don't have to care about other DE's. But then they turn around and say that they wish other DE's will adopt Mir and it will become more popular than Wayland (as if)...

You have got that pretty much exactly backwards. It is Canonical that is being arrogant, trying to flex their muscle in this space, or if taking a less cynical view, simply trying to advance their own priorities at the expense of FOSS interoperability.
