It's not different to the current situation (and that's what I wanted to point out):
With 4.7 there is a runtime requirement to Mesa 7.10 if you want to use the *optional* feauture of OpenGL compositing.

With 4.8 there will be a runtime requirement to Mesa 7.11 if you want to use the *optional* feature of KWin being a Wayland server.

It should not affect the runtime requirements for X11, but if Mesa 7.11 gets released before our 4.8 dependency freeze, we have to depend on it.
