To be honest, I'd personally rather love some new chips to be supported instead. Like having our own RadeonHD driver...
RadeonHD should be "trivial" for an experienced video driver developer. Not only there are specs for it as there is also full source code available.
Although I still think one thing that would be cool would be to create a driver/accelerant wrapper around the binary blob provided by both nVidia and ATI for their Linux drivers. This, in case it proves to be doable, would not only give us full 2D acceleration but would also potentially gives us 3D acceleration in all cards from these vendors.
