i agree that it should be unsupported by us with this licence it has.

as well as you, i'm now wondering as well, what formats will not play 
any more without it. i removed it some time ago because of this, but 
i'm not enough the multimedia-collector-person to realise it yet. the 
only one that didn't play is one a colleague sent me that was WMV-8 
or somethign similar, but this did not play even with codecs 
installed, so it must be something else.

by the way: would it be an option to ask the community (arch-general 
list), what breaks when codecs pkg is removed? more people, more 
experiences, more diversity -> faster
