The question is rather: Is AIGLX finally capable of showing GLX
applications correctly? Last time I tried it didn't.

Xgl supported GLX from very early on. By principle, Xgl doesn't support
direct rendering (this is a major undertaking), but most people won't
realize, that they are using indirect accelerated rendering.

Q3 e.g. works fine with that.
