    Michael, get your stuff together. This is not a feature added for Wayland, but for display servers:
    This work is
    useful to allow Wayland display servers (and similar
    programs, such as kmscon) to run under the user's ID and
    access input and drm devices which are normally
    protected.
    Wayland is a protocol and has nothing to do with systemd at all.

    Finally, after decades of insecurity, safe session switching and unprivileged graphical sessions are possible! Yay!

    I cannot find a roadmap for features to be implemented in future versions of systemd. Does such a document (or equivalent) exist? Thx!

    No I don't think so. The TODO file could give some hints about the future changes though.
