If you are thinking about replacing Mesa with opengl-es-virtual-drv I
think that there is also one more thing to consider. Currently Mesa
provides the implementation for wayland-egl and gbm which are used by
weston.

I know that there is a standalone version of gbm (libgbm) floating
around out there, but it doesn't seem to be maintained and is (already?)
not fully binary compatible with the Mesa version (it defines some extra
symbols).

If you want to replace Mesa, do you know how you can provide gbm and
wayland-egl?

Thank you,
Damian
