The idea is to offer a choice of drivers -- a simple, stable open source driver which can be easily tweaked to work on the newest x & kernel releases (and which can serve as a development vehicle for them), plus a more feature-rich, performance-optimized proprietary driver which will be tested and supported on specific distros.
So we will have the choice between one driver that does not fully work, because it's missing the advanced stuff (likely because of unreleased specifications), and another one that does not fully work, because it does not support the latest distros/new kernels/xorg etc.? Sounds awesome.
