I'll (not so) quietly ignore your Nvidia/Ati comments and point out this line from the 6.9/7.0 release schedule:

"4 Jul 2005: Feature freeze for the monolithic source tree"

So you're not quite right in saying features are "freezed", there's a good chance that this code could be added to Xorg CVS this week.

On another note, my read on things: there's little debate among Xorg developers regarding Xglx being the "future", however there is much debate about timing. Exa is certainly going to work first.
