Question about +quartz vs. +x11 variants

As these are mutually exclusive someone clarify the differences.
1) It appears specifying a +quartz variant uses http://xquartz.macosforge.org/ code
installed on a machine. Yes/No?
2) How does http://xquartz.macosforge.org/ relate to the quartz-wm port? Specifically,
"port install quartz-wm" + quartz-wm --version produces version 1.3.1 while the
XQuartz site shows version 2.7.4 + the XQuartz site implies quartz-wm is part of
it's code ("The quartz-wm window manager included with the XQuartz distribution...")
So to use latest version of XQuartz, does this require installing the .dmg file
from the XQuartz site?
3) Last. Seems like XQuartz is more up to date code than X11. Is there any situation
where +x11 variant is preferred over +quartz?
This is all very confusing.
Thanks for your assistance.
