Why not?  At the moment, differences between the two are small, but in
the future they probably will both have interesting new features.  The
Ports also offer multiple shells, multiple window managers, ... so why
not multiple X-servers?

I don't see why.  XFree86 has been offering us the best free X-server
for years.  It always worked fine for me.  

And why would BSD care about a GPL-incompatible licese?
