I believe that's the case.

Not with full 3D, AFAIK because GNOME's requirements are not
compatible with the XO (and many other devices). I believe what's
needed from GNOME is proper OpenGL ES (not just OpenGL) support. The
XO will probably have to use a proprietary graphics driver, which
creates a whole new set of problems.
