From what I am seeing I will have to use a NXP fsl-* based distribution

a distro with both linux-fslc-imx and limux-imx kernels (I think!) for
the Wandboard, which boots and runs but the HDMI display was not
functional. I will persevere looking at that.
No, you don't. You can use linux-fslc (mainline) and fslc-* distros as
i.MX6 has full mainline support. At O.S. Systems we have been using
Linux mainline with many customers with great success.
Wouldn't make sense to first evaluate the performance of the platform (as Terry plans to do) first on an NXP fsl-* distro? In that case one can get direct support from NXP if required. After that, derive your own distro from fslc-*.

BTW Would kernel.org stable kernel work as well on i.MX6 if you need graphics and video? I used it successfully for headless IOT applications.
