I talked about that with some X developers a while ago and they felt (and I agree with them) that this is something that should not be exported. OpenGL hides it from us for a reason. It is against the philosophy of GL. DirectX allows it but the same as exporting the pci id, it is not something that should be exported in my opinion.
