Nobody knows. Debian NVIDIA Maintainers currently severely lack manpower. As 
Randall wrote several time, any help is welcome. On a quite related note, 
there's also a severe lack of bug triaging. I plan to get back to it once an 
issue with the BTS is solved.

Good question, I don't think this has been discussed yet. It's not clear 
what's the etch and a half plan for updated LKM sources and new prebuilt 
modules (if there's any). I think a possibility would be:
update nvidia-graphics-drivers-legacy
add nvidia-graphics-drivers-96xx
optionally add nvidia-graphics-drivers-current (name is just an idea)

In any case, strictly speaking, nvidia-graphics-drivers (the source package) 
will be kept in etch.
