This doesn't necessarily mean a lot :-)

No, they are not: although NVIDIA may have 95% market share
amongst "serious Linux 3D user", this probably only represents
2 percent of their overall business (if at all). So if they would be forced
to open source their drivers by competition, then nvidia might simply
consider dropping linux support altogether ...
