it doesn't require such thing:
*The non-free wifi firmware runs on the wifi chip
*The non-free 3d driver is optional: it's not needed.
xf86-video-omapfb should supports xv acceleration(you need to install an xorg 
extension in SHR to make it work).
In SHR which uses enlightenment, software compositing is even possible thanks 
to the 24 or 32 bit framebuffer.
