There's a total different approach slated for inclusion into newer
xorg versions by Dave Airlie:

That's something that relies on deep changes in the xorg stack.
It allows card switching, GPU offload, GPU hotswitching etc. All is
controlled by xrandr to do the proper adjustments.
In my opinion that's a much better solution than Bumblebee and it's
going to be integrated by Fedora as part of new xorg components.
