I think it is a bit early to solve this problem.

The foundations of Qt are being rewritten. When this is less shaky, we 
will have a better visibility on what can be done.

Currently, we do not have a problem because people using Qt5 target X11 
or Wayland, not both at the same time. When the problem of multiple 
Lighthouse backends will come, Lighthouse will likely be better defined 
and we will be better equiped to solve the issue.

If you are already working with mixing X11 and Wayland, we can discuss 
workarounds. But I think it is a bit early to give more work to the team 
doing Lighthouse.
