Choosing between Qt Wayland Compositor VS Custom Wayland Compositor

Can someone endorse one approach over the other?
I have not played with Qt Wayland Compositor class apart from the demo included in Qt example folder. So I have little idea how capable it is. Has anyone had this issue? I am aware writing a custom compositor on Wayland is quite straightforward. I am trying to find if there is more compelling reason to use Qt framework to do the same job.
I have UI written in Qt, but the backend which renders a lot of OpenGL graphics talks straight to X server.
In replacing the X with Wayland, I find myself having these two choices.
I'd say it boils down to whether you have a system with weston already running. Or if you want something completly customised to your need/liking.
