Any other comments?
Yes. Even without DVD encryption support, a large part of the codecs

Debian Linux somehow distributes mplayer, probably limited.
Can we do the same?
"large part of the codecs" provide no useful information.

MPEG?, from audio/lame and it is used by mplayer/mencoder package,
no reason to restrict mplayer package.
codecs from ffmpeg? we can switch to use multimedia/ffmpeg,
and multimedia/ffmpeg package is not restricted.
