Will that overhead yield decent performance with your design (assuming Vulkan has decent performance)?  Are individual graphics developers really learning Vulkan, I have heard *not*.  State of the art GPU graphics and general programming is kind of a nightmare, IMHO--incompatible drivers, hardware requirements, etc.  It's a lot of overhead when trying to solve a problem.

Many software projects are transitioning to Vulkan API, though many keep
compatibilities with OpenGL. Godot is in process of supporting Vulkan based
engine. Linux Wayland compositor doesn't yet supports Vulkan. GTK GUI toolkit
is in process of using Vulkan API.
