    Lack of developer time perhaps?

    Why? X.Org isn't running away and Wayland will have matured further by then. Then can take 4 years for all I care.

    I think he wanted to talk about Qt Wayland Compositor which is the Qt Wayland implementation for a Qt QML compositor.
    Mir seems to have its way to go, Qt Wayland Compositor allows more flexibility (I think... but someone experimenting with one or another can confirm ?)

    It doesn't. Latest official Lubuntu release is using LXDE.

    Ubuntu derivative Lubuntu that is now using the LXQt desktop environment has laid out more of their plans to switch over to Wayland rather than the existing X.Org based session...
