Questions on wayland IVI extension for multiscreen support

I am new in automotive SW domain and in particular with  Genivi middleware
I am currently looking for solutions to support of layer composition on multiple screens (screens handled by same ECU directly or multiple ECU (real or virtualized ECU)).
Typical UC : smoothly "Drag&Drop" a Surface from a display (Central display) to another Display (Cluster)

My understanding is  :

-           wayland/weston IVI_shell  (in wayland repo) have been upgraded to support multiple screen end of 2015 (patches uploaded by Tanibata-sen), and ease the support of such described UC.

-          Genivi 11, aligned with wayland repo, should integrate the feature

Do you confirm ?
Do you have any material to better understand the solutions and modifications ? I currently just found some presentation about ivi_shell only.

How do you envision multi-ECU case ?

Thanks in advance for your asnwers ?
