Obviously, don't expect a Nexus to support Google's Daydream platform as well since it's a very hardware-heavy system with strict guidelines.
It's kind of a bummer for users who bought the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P just last year on the promise that they will be getting the latest and greatest from Google for at least 24 months. Sure, you will get regular and timely Android updates for at least one more year, maybe more, but the Nexus 6P did cost a pretty penny and is considered a premium device. This update feels more like a Samsung / LG move — dividing its different generations of devices by UI and features — than a Google update.
