As said, feel free to reopen. And, as usual.., are you willing to work on this 

Also IMO it's not really about integration (yet). First, some general plan and 
then an implementation needs to be found, maybe within freedesktop.org, maybe 
not. Then, packages would need to be changed to implement this plan. And then 
a mass bug filing could be done, if there is consensus on debian-devel@ that 
this should be done. In the bug report I read no consensus _and_ no activity 
since 5 years.

But, as said, feel free to reopen.
