Why Wayland Is Better

X11 is a so called DISPLAY SERVER.

Wayland it not. Wayland is a protocol between Compositor and the Clients, there is not DISPLAY SERVER.

To be a DISPLAY SERVER, you need to be able to RENDER for clients. 

To be able to RENDER for clients, you need to DEFINE A RENDER API, which is a very bad idea

Wayland does not have a render api. you need to use OpenGL or what ever you like to render contents.

Wayland is not, so there's no way for it to display applications on other mathines.

No, You can use VirtuGL to do remote rendering work.
