Yes, you can. However, it currently has some limitations -- e.g., it  
can't use fonts from Mac suitcase or .dfont files, only .ttf and .otf  
(and all the legacy TeX fonts, of course). So I'm not (yet)  
suggesting that Mac XeTeX users switch drivers. But those who like to  
experiment on the "bleeding edge" are of course welcome to try... and  
to offer patches and improvements!
