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 
out Hikari.

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 :-).
