I noticed the 2.20.0 of the Intel driver is up in testing, as a non-suffixed package. Does this mean that the package split into xf86-video-intel-uxa and xf86-video-intel-sna from a week or two ago is being merged (possibly by compiling both into the same driver, an option only enabled through post-2.19 git commits)?

Yep, exactly as you said, the new package has both accel methods in one driver. UXA is default, to use SNA create /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
Section "Device" Identifier "Intel Graphics" Driver "intel" Option "AccelMethod" "sna" EndSection
Thanks, Gusar. It wasn't clear to me what to do with the instructions pacman spat out and the wiki still has the two-package installation in mind.
[I'm not using testing but I assume the package has just made it to stable.]

I just ran xf86-video-intel-git just about this time that the xf86-video-intel-sna and uxa came out. Git seems stable enough, I wonder if I should switch back to the xf86-video-intel?
I may have to CONSOLE you about your usage of ridiculously easy graphical interfaces...
Look ma, no mouse.
