Why Cygwin/X?

Why is KDE-Cygwin still dependant upon Cygwin/X?  It seems that since 
there's a native port of X.org to Win32 
(http://freedesktop.org/wiki/Xming), that could be used instead, so we 
can avoid all the stickiness that comes with Cygwin.  Or is there more 
to the story than just needing an X server (and since I'm just a 
freshman developer, there very well could be)?
