I believe that refers to managing/releasing the core server and graphics drivers as one source tree, as is done with Linux; not to the separate idea of using an OpenGL-based DDX and pushing all hardware access to the kernel.
Keeping the drivers in the same tree with the rest of the kernel helps to keep the drivers from growing their own private implementations of various utility code.
