You confused video overlay with XV here. XV is just an interface, and
the hardware can provide XV functionallity in several ways. See below.

Yes, for ages. One problem is that recent versions if the Intel driver
provide 2 XV ports: textured video and video overlay. Textured video is
crap for movie playback because it causes tearing video. However, it is
reported as the first XV port, so the applications that just select the
first port use textured video.
This is also an issue with MythTV. However, I use a patch for MythTV
from SVN trunk that makes mythfrontend ignore the textured video XV
port and use video overlay instead.
