This is likely to result in integration at chipset level, will have little to do with the OS that's running on the device. Definitely will have almost nothing to do with the user-level of interaction with the device. Android's "fragmentation" -whatever that means- has nothing to do with this because it's perceived at a user-level. End-users will not be able to tell what/how this is impacting their daily activities, will only notice some better battery stats or will benefit from cheaper devices, or both. Not a reason to complain.
Last, but not least, Android will not license this, because Android is an OS; would be like saying Windows will license this or that, not Microsoft. Time to go back to your console, kid, before your parents find out you've been using their PC without their knowledge (and the English Language without a license).
