In summary: On my AMD-based system, Wayland is _almost_ there. But this
combination of intermittent problems makes me hesitant to use it as my
daily-driver. Life is good under X11 for me: things are fast and stable
and boring, which is just perfect. I'm happy to do more testing (i.e.
run for a couple days under Wayland) to do more testing at some point,
but not for day-to-day work.

I believe chunks of this have already been fixed with Plasma 5.21, and
the beta release of Plasma 5.21 will be landing in Rawhide this week
as soon as the tarballs are generated.

I look forward to re-testing. If the cost of being able to eventually move everything to Wayland is replacing my other PC's nvidia card with an AMD one, that's well worth it. Wayland or not, I've been pleasantly surprised by how well everything Just Works(TM) out-of-the-box with the AMD card (and my Free Software soul feels a little better).

That said, have you filed bugs at about this? That way
the upstream KDE developers can evaluate the specifics to see what's
been resolved so far and what needs work.

Other than the kernel panic, no. It feels like everything else on my list is kinda...vague? But also blatantly obvious, like if I'm the first person to notice/file about these things, we're in trouble (or maybe that's how everyone else feels, and nothing has been filed). I can't bring myself to file a bug "the clipboard seems like it sort-of doesn't quite work sometimes but works the rest of the time and I have no other information about patterns or reproducibility".

Here's my thought: Once 5.21 hits, I'll use that for a few days. For any remaining issues at that point, I'll update my list (above) and "we" can decide which ones I should file bugs (versus things that people may know of existing bugs that I should CC myself against or add additional details).
