Work started on supporting the Nvidia driver last year:

message:
  Add an EGLStream client platform and KMS-backed EGLStream server platform.

  Currently supports only software clients, as hooking into nvidia's EGL is not (yet?) possible.

And you can find the source code in lp:mir under src/platforms/eglstream-kms/ but it's not yet complete. So that's why the driver has not yet been released to Ubuntu.

Thanks Daniel van Vugt, that solved my question.
