For Cairo, the GL backend is experimental. Given the fact that upstream fails to provide a stable release model for cairo (every released version is taken from master, featuring regressions), I wouldn't even think about enabling an experimental backend there.
Upstream also claims that applications which don't make use of the GL backend won't be bothered at all. I don't see the harm in a trial run through [testing].
For Mesa, we have to look at how we can implement this without breaking existing stuff. I haven't looked much at Mesa recently, so I can't tell much about this.
Backends are enabled on a priority basis. As long as we pass "--with-egl-platforms=x11,drm,wayland" (in that order), we're fine.
I've pushed cairo with gl and egl backends to testing. xlib-xcb is now also enabled again that now should be safe to use.
I don't know why, but this causes transmission-gtk to hit 100% CPU usage on my system.
