Yes, it is important to implement the proper X.Org project architecture.

I'll take this opportunity to advocate that the xcb source repositories
should be relocated under /xorg if feasible. These are the only
externally recognizable hints that xcb is part of x.org project. That
would be helpful to direct comments/bug reports to the correct location.
