This morning portage has USE -dri default for xf86-video-intel:
Code:
[ebuild   R    ] x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel-2.20.18  USE="-dri*"

Code:
% sudo lshw |grep -B 2 -A 8 -i graph                                                             
        *-display         
             description: VGA compatible controller
             product: Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller
             vendor: Intel Corporation
             physical id: 2
             bus info: pci@0000:00:02.0
             version: 02
             width: 64 bits
             clock: 33MHz
             capabilities: msi pm vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom
             configuration: driver=i915 latency=0

Things have been good with video on my Thinkpad X201 lately on ~amd64. Even WebGL seems to be working.

Has anything changed with dri's relevance that I should accept the default to disable it?

Thanks.

You should have dri flag enabled, or else things will break.

The setting which enables dri by default was recently moved from the default into the desktop profile, which is probably why portage wants to disable it now.
