#580894 (the original reason for the blacklist) has conflicting reports 
of what would happen next: some report nvidia.ko gets control (=blank 
screen if the graphics side isn't installed), some that nouveau.ko does. 
  It also may have changed since, and isn't testable in a chroot.

I agree that that's the ideal solution in the long term but too much of 
a change for jessie.
