470.82 is the first version that supports EGL_NV_robustness_video_memory_purge which is required so we don't run into bug 1731172. The first stable release of the 495 series also supports that extension, previous beta versions don't need to be considered.

We should request uplift to beta given it impacts who gets WebRender.

We don't ship EGL on Nvidia in 95/beta. So this currently only affects nightly/early beta until bug 1737428 lands.

EGL is already shipping on

IIUC:
If we ignore mostly irrelevant "Gnome Wayland (Mutter) with optional EGLStreams backend enabled", (X)Wayland effectively requires driver 495 (Gbm backend) to work at all. Minimum driver version is already enforced outside Firefox.
Letting these changes ride the trains should suffice.
