Trying out Precise and I can see there's no longer a proprietary Nvidia driver available! Why?

Booting up the system with Noveau as my only option leave me with a needlessly sluggish Unity 2D desktop. Checking


/usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p

gives


OpenGL vendor string: Nouveau
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI nv18 x86/MMX+/3DNow!+/SSE
OpenGL version string: 1.2 Mesa 8.0.2

Not software rendered: yes
Not blacklisted: yes
GLX fbconfig: yes
GLX texture from pixmap: yes
GL npot or rect textures: yes
GL vertex program: no
GL fragment program: no
GL vertex buffer object: yes
GL framebuffer object: yes
GL version is 1.4+: no

Unity 3D supported: no


Is this like it's supposed to be or did something go wrong updating from Lucid? I'm fairly sure I'd have better 3D support with NVidias proprietary driver.
