if we don't share the graphics stack with other distributions anymore, we
reduce the amount of people to make all bugs shallow. Currently it is
likely that other distributions see the same ones, increasing exposure.

I'm not so sure that we have the guys at hand to fix such bugs. I.e.,
the experts you're talking of. In reality there are bugs like [1]
that remain unsolved. If they only apply to X, there will be barely
any motivation to fix them given Mir. If they only apply to (X)Mir,
it's even more unlikely that somebody comes up with a solution.
