Only in the sense that if Google or Red Hat had come from them they'd be upfront about what their objectives really were and not try to have a technical argument as to it's rationale and then have it was shown that their arguments were false and purely FUD that shows either A). The coders didn't really understand wayland and so calls in the the questionability of the skill and intent of the developers involved and raises questions about why they didn't try to interact with the wayland devs or (the more likely) B). That it was a smokescreen to launch from because they thought it sounded better than "We want to control our future".

As I've said before I don't think most people are taking issue because Mir exists, for me and reading through these forums most people the issue is the foul play on the part of canonical.
