Update wayland.xml to version 1.16.0
Now that we've stopped including the system libwayland protocol headers, i.e. wayland-client.h and wayland-server.h, it should be safe to update the protocol definitions to the latest version. Note that this just updates the protocol definition, the implementations for the various interfaces are still using the old versions.

- Surfaces are also used for some special purposes, e.g. as
- cursor images for pointers, drag icons, etc.
+ A surface without a "role" is fairly useless: a compositor does
+ not know where, when or how to present it. The role is the
+ purpose of a wl_surface. Examples of roles are a cursor for a
+ pointer (as set by wl_pointer.set_cursor), a drag icon
+ (wl_data_device.start_drag), a sub-surface
+ (wl_subcompositor.get_subsurface), and a window as defined by a
+ shell protocol (e.g. wl_shell.get_shell_surface).
+
+ A surface can have only one role at a time. Initially a
+ wl_surface does not have a role. Once a wl_surface is given a
+ role, it is set permanently for the whole lifetime of the

+ unless explicitly forbidden by the relevant interface
+ specification.
+
+ Surface roles are given by requests in other interfaces such as
+ wl_pointer.set_cursor. The request should explicitly mention
+ that this request gives a role to a wl_surface. Often, this
+ request also creates a new protocol object that represents the
+ role and adds additional functionality to wl_surface. When a
+ client wants to destroy a wl_surface, they must destroy this 'role
+ object' before the wl_surface.
+
+ Destroying the role object does not remove the role from the
+ wl_surface, but it may stop the wl_surface from "playing the role".
+ For instance, if a wl_subsurface object is destroyed, the wl_surface
+ it was created for will be unmapped and forget its position and
+ z-order. It is allowed to create a wl_subsurface for the same
+ wl_surface again, but it is not allowed to use the wl_surface as
+ a cursor (cursor is a different role than sub-surface, and role
+ switching is not allowed).
