Zink is OpenGL implemented on top of Vulkan, as a part of Mesa3D. This enables us to support desktop-grade OpenGL on mobile platforms, even when no OpenGL driver exists at all. Because this translation appears in user-space, this is also useful for virtualization-purposes; provide virtualization of Vulkan and get OpenGL for free.
