this was actually precisely my point. but you indicated that you
didn't care about anything that wasn't X11. my point was that X11 is
not an appropriate "abstraction" for this purpose, whereas what you
just described is.
AFAIU, there are no plans for it to do so. Since X clients can be
hosted by a rootless X server running on top of Wayland, the plan is
to continue to allow X to be used when network transparency matters,
thus allowing Wayland to focus on a efficiently and productively
implementing a drawing/display/rendering model that doesn't make very
much sense across a network (in a word: compositing).
