I have installed and been using newer Mesa for quite a while now, without any
issue.  I also satisfied other updates needed for xorg server 1.9.2 (don't
remember what they were, some two other xorg lightweight ports).

But personally for me the following bug is a showstopper for using 1.8.x or 1.9.x:

This matches my experience too - no hassle, no problems.
