Obviously if such patches were to be indeed rejected, canonical would still be able to fork wayland. But that would put us right where we are today.
This is all a pretty big stretch without any evidence. I seriously doubt Intel has all that much power over all of Wayland's contributors.

I would actually say Wayland is friendlier than Mir (MIT versus CLA'd GPL).

That is more of a technical argument than a political one.
