to use egl you need a native display handle AND a native window. that
requires access directly to x11 display pointer and x11 window id (or
wayland equivalents). since we are moving from one to the other there
is no way we will ant time soon or likely even in the future, allow
this as it totally violates the portability between display systems
(let alone how events are handled etc. not even starting there). this
is how egl was designed and it simply goes directly up against a move
in display systems.

in future with vulkan things might look very different as it has no egl
layer. :) but egl/gles - likely not.
