 I would like to add that starting with AMD HD 69XX the open source radeon
driver will be built on top of Gallium 3D only (source :
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=ODk4OQ). As far I'm
concerned the two drivers are now on par at least for r300 et r600 (I don't
know the situation for the other GPU).

So I guess that would be nice to (at least) think to switch.
