Yes, but from long time ago it is possible to use any driver version under FreeBSD 7 branch (and even on 8). Simply, in case they works (and it is not always true), they use the same infrastructure as under 6 branch: compat5x is anyway required.
The new 7 branch is not so different from the older to require a completely new driver release, just some minor patch will do the work. And since it seems that nVidia is so sticky with that compatibility package, there are no reason to believe they will do a total rework of their driver
