Default Nvidia overwriting Red Hat supplied libGL?

I need 3D support in the new Red Hat Enterprice 5.
I allways used drivers, but at the moment, they only have support for the RHEL 4.92 beta.
Then I wanted to install the original Nvidia driver downloaded from and switch to the Atrpms supported version later.
Now I read a note by the the Xorg developer at Red Hat that the driver supplyed by Nvidia in a .run file overwrites the libglx.a provided by Red Hat.
By doing this, Nvidia makes it impossible to switch back to Red Hat supplied DRI 3D acceleration.

Is that still the case, or has the Nvidia driver policy changed since February 2006?

Best Regards
