Default Framebuffer and X

Hi,
I think that Nvidia Linux support can't be considered to be *complete* as long as Nvidia drivers conflict with the kernel framebuffer driver (nvidiafb/rivafb), and/or without providing an alternative framebuffer driver into their official proprietary driver.
In fact a Linux user is not just an Xwindow user, he/she could well be also a console user.
So if Nvidia doesn't support the console display they cannot say they "support Linux" completely.
When will we have a good driver working on *both* the framebuffer and X?
Cheers.
