So there was some work done for integration, even if the whole idea was already demoed and done by hobbyists.

Sharing kernel driver with android/X would seem a rather complex solution. And depends on the goodwill of the proprietary code vendors. Would seemingly make more sense to create xorg-server-android which exposes whatever 2d-acceleration/opengl-es/video codecs the android phone already supports.
As bonus point you could then sell the xserver as an independent Android app in the market for the small group of users who want to run X11 apps remotely on android.

Integration and polish have value, and there's a difference between a chroot that can be set up by power users and getting a working system out of the box. Although it isn't clear to me yet that this is what will happen here.
