Not unless you also have a BTTV card.

No (not right) and probably (if you want to make it correct, but since 
your system is working, you risk causing problems).  char-major-81 
should be aliased to videodev.  char-major-81-[devnum] should be aliased 
to the driver for the video device (as you've done with char-major-81-0).
