Ubuntu is your distro and if Wayland does not fulfill your expectations and forces compromises just don't use it.
I use Ubuntu extensively personally and on work. I'm not jealous, I just care about it. I don't want it to just fail, I want it to fail and die fast. Why?
-Two competing new DS is going to make the situation even worse than just with Xorg
-They didn't engage with Wayland, and created the project secretly
-It's going to fragment GNU/Linux ecosystem on a base level (it's not like creating yet another desktop shell)
-They didn't create it for technical reasons. They want complete control and ownership of the copyright and the project.
