use OPTIONS in x11-drivers/xorg-drivers

I just wanted to ask why the x11-drivers/xorg-drivers port installs all 
those drivers unconditionally.
Wouldn't it be sensible to use the OPTIONS framework to let the user 
choose what he wants and needs?
To make the choice easier for the user you could enable drivers that he 
most likely needs by default.
To find out what graphics driver he needs you could consult pciconf(8).

Best regards,
