It's not compulsory but we recommend to use DRM instead of Linux framebuffer because Linux framebuffer not only has many limitations for advanced ARM SoC but also doesn't support the integrated buffer manager.

It would be dependent on what backend - Linux framebuffer or DRM - is used by native window system such as X or Wayland server.
The advantages with DRM is that Tizen platform is DRM-friendly so it is easy to port Tizen platform to your kernel, including easy-to-manage DMA buffer and many hardware features available.
