I don't think that this will happen anytime soon.
There are way too many Linuxisms in Wayland:


But I may be wrong: they could have started moving towards
other platforms recently (?).

IMHO, there's much more pressing need for some really *useful*
work on FreeBSD, like, say, finally getting Xen/Dom0 support.
This, and ZFS, would be a killer app in data centers all around the
world! ;-) Let the Linux guys get Wayland up and running smoothly
enough, then we may think of porting evdev and other Linuxisms
into a new compatibility shim.
