Yes. IMHO because the actual OpenGL driver is not free software and thus not easily fixable it is important that it is not accepted in mainline Linux if only for strategic reasons.
I found this post by David Airlie http://airlied.livejournal.com/76383.html and quote part of it:
"Will this mean the broadcom kernel driver will get merged?
No."

the good news is that he is not the one who makes that decision, Linus is. and as noted elsewhere in this thread, Alan Cox doesn't see a problem with merging this.
