No: because Sarge will be released soon, Debian hasn't switched to X.org yet, they can't afford such a big switch just before a release (I've heard this is the reason). Debian still uses XFree86 4.3.0, which doesn't have the license problem. Debian will probably switch when Sarge is released.

I upgraded to x.org manually on my redhat 7.3 machine and it wasn't that difficult. However with debian I don't want to break any package dependencies so I'm going to continue using whatever they provide. I'd do it manually if you have to have it.
