You are correct. The open source driver provided with XORG works fine with ATI, but only for 2D graphics, so don't expect compiz-fusion to work with an ATI card... at least not yet. Maybe in the future there will be a full featured ATI driver for the *BSD's since AMD/ATI have plans to release the specs so people can create an open source version of the driver. If all fails you can always use the VESA driver provided by XORG to get a fully functional desktop.
