Let me ask you a question: What benefit are there to having Open source drivers now? Now given that X.org can already do proprietary drivers and OSS drivers are being developed and that won't really change if Catalyst and Nvidia's binary driver are brought on board with wayland why would the OSS drivers stop being developed? I believe once you think about those two things you should see that it's really not an issue...
