This entire saga is a balance between what you, as non-free linux user (you are not using an open source OS, see Dave Airlied's OLS talk) want and what the people who bought an open source supported card need. The later is of course all Intel graphics (40% market share) and a chunk of ATI users (R300), both of which have drivers that made a huge leap forward in X 7.1, adding lots of hardware support.
It's not a clear case that your position is worth more than the other users position...
