XFree86 vs. X.Org's X11R6.7

Being that there have been some non-GPL compatible changes made to the XFree86 license and other distros like Gentoo (my previous distro before finding Arch,) Debian, OpenBSD, and Mandrake have all rejected the new license, will Arch start offering and/or using X.Org's X Windows system (a free fork of XFree86, started by some of the founders of the original XFree86 software) or will it continue to use XFree86?

My question is brought up by a Slashdot article I read - although I was previously aware of the problems introduced by XFree86 4.4 license changes...
