If the KMS drivers are separated from the graphics drivers, couldn't the same KMS driver be used by both the open source and the closed drivers? If so, Companies like AMD, NVIDIA, etc. might all provide KMS drivers so that the graphics driver devs don't have to. This would free up time and resources for additional graphics driver development. Wouldn't this be a great thing? (Assuming my the answer to the first question is a yes, of course.)
And I've, for years, missed the part where there's no longer an expectation that software should work.
