I am simply stating what the maintainer himself has stated on the Xquartz mailing lists. 

I don’t disagree, but also I made the comment on this list on the assumption everything here does have MP installed. In that case I would suggest using the port is the better option.

The maintainer has also stated if someone wanted to do the work to simplify the task of creating a standalone installer from the MP installation, he would welcome it, as he has very limited time to devote to maintaining X11 on macOS (which is why he might only focus on MP going forward).
