Something must happen in the near future. The situation like it is right now isn't really good.

As time passes by NVIDIA does support less linux features like XRAND 1.2+ or xvmc.

I know OpenGL support is important but that is not everything.

I really doubt NVidia will change their driver policy and design just to accommodate better linux compatibility. Don't take me wrong, I would love such a development, but market share doesn't allow this - at least for now.
