Default Mulling 5.3 -> current in light of recent Xorg Vulnerabilities

I have several computers all running OpenBSD. After the recent Toronto Hackathon, current is running extremely well with a long standing xombrero issue resolved.
OpenBSD 5.3-current (GENERIC.MP) #10: Thu Jun 13 00:29:17 MDT 2013
Also perusing the recent Xenocara code base, many of the Xorg vulnerabilites (I previously posted in News) have been addressed in current.

The number and extent of the recent xorg vulnerabilities was large enough to wonder if and how the vulnerabilities would be addressed in 5.3 release (one huge patch and whole xenocara build, multiple small patches with selective xenocara builds, new x install sets or do nothing at all). I have seen some comments acknowledging the issue in openbsd-misc but no discussion on how it will be addressed. There were no comments in the hackathon or in openbsd-x11

My systems function mostly as desktops so Xorg vulnerabilities carry some weight.

Anyone have insight as to if the vulnerabilities in 5.3 will be addressed? I think it counts as the base install.

Your best insight should come from matthieu@. All you'd get from a user community is conjecture.
