Looks like NIH to me. People involved with Wayland have said that Canonical's claimed reasons for not using Wayland are bogus (see https://plus.google.com/100409717163...ts/jDq6BAgdpkG and http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tem&px=MTMxNzY). If Canonical thinks Wayland isn't progressing quickly enough, they could consider helping. Perhaps that would be in the spirit of ubuntu.
