Every non-trivial change is a significant work.

Actually there is another reason to not import all of xsrc, Xorg and its
components are largely obsolete (like xedit - 1 source code change since
2015) and are heading for formal discontinuation.

How about moving into src only what is worth it for wayland and possibly
users (framebuffer?), so at least Mesa?

At some point of time xsrc will be just discontinued and archived.
