This is very agreeable - keeping legacy X support will probably a priority for some time. That said, Wayland support is something that Xfce is greatly missing! Having both environments in the wider project will be a great fit for the community.
Please continue with the updates on this!

Otherwise will end up with a new environment inspired by Xfce, which will either have to be forced upon Xfce users or work its way up the adoption ladder like any other new DE.

I would not merge anything more than a few ifdefs into Xfwm4 or other existing Xfce applications. There is a lot of value in keeping the existing X11 desktop stable and allowing it to evolve in parallel without forcing anyone to fork and rename it first. Why not use xfway as the name of the compositor binary? It seems to fit Xfce conventions well, both in the level of awkwardness and poorly defined meaning ;-) I would like Xfway to be a part of Xfce (provided it will not hijack it). The question is if Xfway itself is ready for incremental development. Research and experimentation is still ongoing (and for a good reason, this phase is important), wayland spec and implementations (now wlroots, maybe something else someday) are evolving. Some cleanups (naming and build system matching the rest of Xfce) would also be nice, although this could be done later.
