Just my thoughts, though, I might be the crazy one. lol
I don't think that's relevant to our side, though. It's still the Vulkan backend, GZDoom and Raze do not have a native Metal backend. It doesn't really matter to us that Vulkan is transformed into Metal on Mac. If people are using Mesa3D, do we rename OpenGL into software rendering?

I think MoltenVK is better as it's not a "pure" Metal implementation if that makes sense.

Well the difference is that in that case it's the user who has opted to use that. In the case of MoltenVK the app is itself bundled with the wrapper.
