a. Emulate a real 3D card such as GeForce - it solves the drivers problem automatically - but this card is closed-source hardware, so we can't simply emulate it, + it will be damn slow.
This is very very difficult to do technically, so probably, it won't happen.

But test rendering of simple OpenGL samples to an external window on the host works.
Perhaps some of you might want to reach out and help out to complete the work.
