I am not sure I understand this question. I, for one, would like to
see packaged both xorg and kdrive based servers.

FreeDesktop.Org would be my choice.

The work of the XSF is excellent, and I really don't know how to
answer this without a thorough examination of the sources.

I would vote _multiple_ _implementations_, but this IMHO would
discard the possibility of "starting from our sanitized XFree86", or
at least would demand more resources.
>* If we standardize on just one, which one should it be?
I think most other distros are opting for xorg (seems to be
compatible with the infamous nvidia/ati binary drivers)
