7.0 (and 7.1, which is just around the corner) is the way forward,
especially if we want all those nice "features" that Linux users can
enjoy today. like XGL.

Radeon has received a lot of attention since 7.0 from the X.org people,
so I consider porting 7.0 to be a good thing, especially since I suspect
this will make the porting of 7.1 slightly less painful.
