egl is part of OpenGL-ES

mesa is extending egl so that it will work in a desktop environment
These changes are being discussed on this list

egl is a replacement for glx such that you can create screens, modes,
configs, etc without having an Xserver around. This lets you have a
standalone OpenGL stack outside of the XServer.

Xgl then runs on top of the standalone OpenGL stack.

There is already a framebuffer based egl driver for DRI checked into mesa CVS

Xgl is implemented using glitz

I'm about to check in an egl driver for glitz.

egl support is still under going a large amount of development work.
It is too early to try using it unless you want to help make it
