Well, V4L2, but yes.

Correct - they don't have the device drivers to access.
Only one reason - to build mpegrecorder.cpp so that
dummy file:// based recorders can be used for testing.

Fortunately, videosource.cpp doesn't let mythtv-setup
add an HD-PVR device because USING_V4L isn't defined,
so it is unlikely a Mac/Windows user will notice.

Should have said all that in my configure checkin!
