They still do, and the version needed currently is xserver-xorg-video-5.
But I think nvidia-glx should not provide either of these, as it would
have to be rebuilt each time the xserver-xorg ABI changes, not
installable in both testing and unstable etc.
The downside of not providing xserver-xorg-video-$versiondujour is that
some other package providing it has to be installed, but installing
xserver-xorg-video-nv is not that much of a problem.
