 I'd rather suggest that everything depends either on Mesa or Xorg
 Libraries, but with a note on these respective pages that Xorg Server
 might be expected to be running at app runtime.

 I think you were not addressing this to me, because we are in very close
 points of view here. However, I do not fully understand the word "lie":-)

 About the note, for the packages that would need it, wolud not Wayland be
 also an alternative at runtime?

 I am discussing it here, but think that Igor, who is maintaining Xorg,
 would be more indicated to do the modifications, if any.
