It hasn't, apparently still nobody's needed it badly enough to do
anything about it.

It's a crude hack. Two PCI device specifiers with different domain
numbers could refer to completely different devices.

There's a chance this would (or at least could) be fixed with the
upcoming reorganization of the X server PCI code to use libpciaccess.
Please try the upstream xserver GIT branch pci-rework and report
upstream if the problem persists there.
