The OLPC XO does have some accelerated graphics paths, just not as
many or as fast as some other systems.

Yes, but not for the reason you give.  The OLPC XO is still in
production, and is still in deployment.  The best reason for not
selecting the OLPC XO as your main target is so that Sugar can be
suitable for as many platforms as possible.

Any design decisions that leave the OLPC XO terribly behind will cause
deployments to maintain a fork.

I'm aware of a volunteer deployment that has already taken this
decision, because of the perceived effect of the GTK3 conversion,
which did not live up to hopes.
