    AFAIK you have to set up a swapchain for that specific windowing system in your Vulkan app. So if an application only sets up a XCB or Windows Swapchain it won't run on Wayland or Mir.

      It's purely a priority issue. Working Vulkan support depends on some internal buffer semantics changes, and releasing those changes has been postponed to minimize churn while issues with actual shipping devices are addressed. This is what happens when the best-laid plans meet the exigencies of production.
