I doubt Wayland will be a fully functional replacement for X11 even by the 
time Plasma 7 will be released. Surely not in the 6.x lifetime.

Unfortunately, you are only cherry-picking individual issues people have 
found with Wayland (and it is very unlikely they will all be addressed in 
time for F40, as some are quite fundamental and/or require several separate 
codebases to be updated in lockstep) and completely ignoring the general 
opposition to dropping X11 to begin with.
