-Just a wild question:
-Assuming that user mode drivers means UMS, does this mean that there
-will be such drivers in the future ? Or is that what's the nature of
-the proprietary/binary drivers ?

I believe "user mode drivers" in this context means open or closed source GL drivers. The plan is to always use open source X driver and KMS.
