As XCB is a hard requirement for libX11, and libX11-xcb.so is a deprecated 3KB
.so, it's not worth splitting it into a separate package.

3kb is 3kb. If its deprecated, things will stop linking with it and
nothing will depend on it and everyone will be happy as it fades into
history.

What am I missing?

Cheers,

Richard

And there is quite a few packages with libx11-xcb* in depends:
Package: pulseaudio*
Package: xdpyinfo
Package: gst-plugins-good-pulse
Package: libgnome-desktop-2-17
Package: libpulse-mainloop-glib0
Package: libpulse-simple0
Package: libpulse0
Package: libpulsecore
Package: libstartup-notification-1-0
Package: libx11-dev
Package: libx11-xcb1
Package: matchbox-panel-2

So if you really decide to merge it with libx11 then bump PR in all
those recipes too.

What's the upgrade path? This commit will create a clash because now 2 packages will provide the same file. Is that pain really worth it?

The pain is "just" a matter of some dependencies I - again :(  -
forgot to add.  The library disappearing entirely at some glorious
point in the future (from the list Martin provided, it looks like
libstartup-notification and libpulse are the main offenders) is a good
reason to ditch this patch.
