The Xgl was already released and thanks to some folks in the X.org community they have integrated the code into the build framework (whatever that means).

The pieces that are being released are the tools needed to take advantage of Xgl and are not part of X directly.

??? Like what for example?

And if they do matter so much. Is Novell going to publish them as well or not?

XGL is now integrated in main xserver tree. however some other Xorg parts still need work (or patching) for it to be usable. Mesa for example.
