Will nvidia-graphics-drivers ever transition to testing?

nvidia-graphics-drivers was removed from testing ten months ago.[0]
New versions cannot transition to testing because of dependencies
on modules which are only built by module-assistant.[1]  These m-a
built modules are apparently unknown to Britney.[2]

Will nvidia-graphics-drivers ever transition to testing?[3]

Will nvidia-graphics-drivers be included in EtchAndAHalf?[4]
