Apart from the freedom issue (which is important), is this actually a
new feature for Gnome 2.14?  GStreamer 0.8 also used plugins, so surely
codec vendors had the same ability to offer plugins back then as with 0.10.

Has anything actually changed here other than a vendor (Fluendo) making
use of this ability?  If not, then this probably isn't appropriate for
the release notes.
