I don't expect any change in MacPorts.  They're deprecated, not removed.  "Native" ports should transition to Metal, and X11 ports will continue to use mesa for GLX.

More importantly, what will be the performance impacts on 10.14? I have the impression that the video card drivers have to provide hardware level OpenGL support for the current performance levels in 10.13 and earlier, no? If so. how much can than be mitigated on the user land side?
