Again, you're extrapolating way too far from a single problem case. The
problem is simply that we have the xorg-x11-drivers metapackage which
requires every single X driver and is in the critpath. There's various
ways we could adjust this so it's no longer the case. It's hardly
something that renders an entire policy invalid.

The proventesters are not an immutable set. There's certainly people who
have the hardware - anyone with an XO, and I see enough of them at
FUDCons. All we need is for one of them to sign up to be a proventester.
This isn't impossible either.
