Should? No. If it was essential, we would do so automatically and put up
big flashing neon warning signs if it failed.

With the exception of not having Xv (or XvMC) support enabled for glamor
in -intel, you can, at your own risk, enable glamor during configure
(./configure --enable-glamor) and then select it using
Section "Device"
   Identifier "Device0"
   Driver "intel"
   Option "AccelMethod" "glamor"

in either /etc/X11/xorg.conf or as a snippet
