Why doesnt VirtualBox, Qemu, Xen, Paralells, or VMWare work on getting coherence mode and 3D acceleration working on *nix hosts?

Also, does coherency still work when Vista guests are used? I've only seen screenshots of XP using it.

You have been able to do something similar to coherence mode using RDP and all the emulators you mentioned since before Parallels had it. It sounds like VirtualBox has a neat built in RDP feature too, I haven't used it though.
