There should not be graphics effect that AIGLX can do and XGL can't, and the reverse. At the end, all this work is done just to offload work to the GPU. So when all this work is really finished (1-2 years at least) what is going to limit the amount of graphic effects you can get is your graphics card regardless of aiglx or xgl.

Also notice that both aiglx and xgl are not the final solution, they're just different methods to make easier to evolve x.org to something like xegl, AFAIK (being xgl the most radical and the one that needs more work)
