[Q] Camera in open source roms

The camera is better in the Sony stock ROM compared with for example CM. I have understood that this is due to the driver being closed source, owned by Sony.

How possible is it that the open source camera will be as good as the proprietary one?
Has Sony ever before released the sources for their other camera drivers, or have they released the driver as a binary blob usable in other ROMs?

I am asking just out of curiosity.
