Not a bad compromise...but it could be better.

This is a pretty good idea in my opinion. Those who are philosophically dedicated to only using free media formats and players can. Those who want to use restricted formats are directed to a place where the necessary components are for sale. Everything is legal and above the board.

My complaint is that I'd like to be able to buy legal codecs -- from Fluendo or anyone else -- that work with Mplayer and other well-established media players. I don't want to be locked into using Fluendo's player.
