Doesn't this sound a little similar to the gcc v. egcs issue that came about a few years ago. Since then, gcc has come on leaps and bounds with it's support for x86 based processors. Hopefully the same will happen to X development.
Also, regarding the lack of commercial support for X development. Maybe Keith is right that the hurdles to get onto the core team are too high and hence the lack of commercial interest. Could it be that it's easier for developers to be influential in other projects, hence commercial funging to push for their own ends?
Just my comments from a grateful user of all this free software....
