A lot of the stuff that's mentioned as being dropped was also dropped in the XFree86 4.4 release (like PEX, etc.), mostly because it was obsolete. Only a few files in the XFree86 codebase had the widely disliked new license.
On the other hand, there's other updates in this new x.org release that (I believe) are not in XF86 4.4 (the freetype, xft, etc. updates for example). I could be wrong about that though, as it's from memory (of compiling the XF86 18.104.22.168 releases) several weeks ago.
