XQuartz installs differently on Leopard vs. later versions of the OS.  On Leopard, it was considered the upgrade path for the built-in X11, so it does replace it.  On later versions of the OS, the built-in X11 is considered a system component which is only upgraded by Software Update, and then only rarely for things like security updates.  It's intended to be a stable component of the system.  XQuartz installs in a separate location, /opt/X11, so as not to interfere with the built-in X11 or anything which relies on it.
