    The only future Wayland leads to is the trash bin.

    That train of thought makes sense for bleeding edge distros, which is not the case of Debian.
    That said, we'll still be able to select Wayland during install...

    Good point, but that's not really the principle of Debian, or Ubuntu for that matter. Debian is meant to be stable (interpret that as you will) while Ubuntu is meant to be as compliant and compatible to as wide of an audience as possible. As much as I welcome Wayland with open arms, I don't see it suitable for Debian [stable] or Ubuntu LTS releases. However, I do think having Wayland by default is fine (if not a good idea) for Debian testing.

    Majority does not use default in Debian, so whatever it will be... who cares

    IBM must have done this evil deed, nobody else supports Wayland

    Yes, and one of those choices is considered default and is installed for those users whom simply click "next" without selecting one of the non-defaults first
