Today the older UMS code paths provide a good "fail safe" alternative when the newer KMS code has problems. Over time the expectation is that the KMS issues will get resolved (I think it's mostly a matter of remembering/reinventing old hardware-specific hacks and putting something similar for each into KMS), hopefully before the UMS code bitrots and stops being a useful fallback. This all applies mainly to older (ie already supported) hardware.
For new hardware support, nearly all of it is being implemented KMS-only anyways.
