Will X11 apps in Wayland have hardware acceleration?


So, I understand that Wayland is based on OpenGLES, because proprietary graphics drivers only support X. However, if a X11 server is running on top of Wayland for legacy applications, will that X server be able to use graphics card drivers to get hardware acceleration?
