I can't speak for the ftpmasters and Security Team, but honestly I can't
see why they would allow this in the archive or in any stable release,
respectively.
Indeed, we had this discussions a few years ago where I started the NX
packaging group. NX in its current state with the embedded code copys won't
be accepted by ftpmasters. That was stated clearly.

Alex

Is that the code in nx-X11/extras? Or the full nx-X11 tree?

Note that we have tested loads of different build variants against Xorg 7. The highest stability (which is virtually no session crashes anymore) we ever achieved is by the way we currently build the code as one monolith.

Thanks,
Mike
