Will the open source drivers be featureful/very fast?

(This question was partially answered in http://airlied.livejournal.com/50187.html?thread=160523#t160523 )

In the past ATI has been burned by releasing specs and getting back drivers that didn't perform very quickly/lacked features (some will argue the old rage 128 drivers will never be completely fixed). Will the new open source drivers be very fast (or will they only strive for base level performance for open source software)? Is this likely given current expertise levels? Additionally will the features for using software with cutting edge 3D features (if things like Maya, id tech or Unreal Engine are ever ported to Linux again) be implemented in the short term (a year or less)?
