Wayland does not have any means of window positioning
Wayland support will require us to completely rethink how popups get positioned
Basically it allows you to set placement target rectangle on the parent window
Which works well with PlacementTarget and PlacementRectangle concepts from WPF

Basically we won't be able support Absolute, AbsolutePoint and Custom placement modes

It should not be
