Also writing from sway on Wayland.
I've been looking at Hikari (in ports) which is very promising
*and* the author (raichoo) has some good inputs regarding Wayland
(and a FOSDEM 2020 talk about that).
Specifically, Hikari's readme contains information about using
Wayland on FreeBSD: https://hikari.acmelabs.space
That certainly was enough for me to be able to use sway and test
Apparently there was a bunch of work in February/early March
regarding xwayland-devel and libepoll-shim, which were quite
relevant in making things easy now.
Maybe you can use all of this and what's on the wiki to bring it
up to date :-).
