They will. The question is not "if", but "when". 

And not pushing a new version is not gonna make this appear sooner.

Also, not pushing the new version is likely decrease the quality of the
xorg server, since there will be less tests done, ( or rather tests done
later ). 

This is also sending the wrong signal ( ie, "take cards supported by
proprietary blob and by vendors that are not providing sources, because
we care more about them rather than those who fully cooperate" ).
