Wayland is a nano display server, relying on drm modesetting, gem batchbuffer submission and hw initialization generally in the kernel. Wayland puts the compositing manager and display server in the same process.  Window management is largely pushed to the clients, they draw their own decorations and move and resize themselves, typically implemented in a toolkit library.
