Comment (by Krejzi):

 First of all, Wayland is a protocol that is being developed to replace X
 Window System in the future. It's not quite ready, but it's mostly usable
 for some GTK+3, Qt5 and Efl based apps.

 As for a word "lie", it is important why it's between " ". It simply isn't
 true that for most of the packages I listed entire Xorg is required (not
 true -> "lie" -> word play).

 In reply to comment 4,

 I don't think you really want to list X window system for every package. I
 believe that a note on Xorg Libraries page will be enough, as I mentioned
 at the end of comment 6, in the same fashion as the note on the Clutter
 page saying that working DRI setup is required.
