Not yet it doesn't, people are too focused on the RPi, not many people know about the Gooseberry, I found it by accident.
Give it time though, they have Ubuntu running on it. They sent out 2 of the initial run boards to Arch linux team who are porting it to Gooseberry.
It runs ICS smooth though, something the RPi will never be able to do because lack of ram.

I know you can emulate the image on QEMU on Windows, but I don't particularly fancy booting into Windows...
QEMU is available to OS X, too, no?
Thing is, I'd adore to set up some stuff for it already or develop for it and then when it arrives, I'd clone the image to an SD card and BOOM I'd be running my juicy tasks!
Still looking for either a cheapskate-compatible LCD 10" (sub 40$) or the ASUS VGA-HDMI converter for less than 30 Euros...

No there will not be hardware accelleration because there are no DRI or X11 drivers/modules for it.
And unless the full spec of the GPU is available to very experianced kernel coders (and chances are it isn't, RPis isn't, you need to be under NDA), it will never happen.

This is not correct...
They can't iron out performance bugs, it doesn't have the CPU power.
Apple TV 3 which has 1Ghz Apple A5 chip struggles with XBMC, Boxee Box runs a 1.2Ghz Atom. RPi has 700Mhz CPU and has no chance at running XBMC smoothly.

What mA (mAh) power supply are you using? I was having problems with my Pi at first and then realized I had swapped the 700ma I had intended to use with it with a 550. You need a 700-1200ma for the "B" Pi.
My RPi is ok but very buggy at times and needs constant reboots. I know this is due to the OpenElec build I'm using (I'm using mine as an extender to my XBMC machine downstairs), but I think it will always be lacking.
