The short answer is that in the "DVR" Menu theme, it is.  The long answer is
that there *has* been discussion to that exact effect (That Live TV should
be moved out of the way).  I can't tell you what will come of it, but it has
been discussed.

I will also say that there is at least one myth dev who is doing his best to
improve the Live TV situation, but it is a slow process and that he should
be left alone to do that work, and if it improves, it improves, and if it
doesn't, you're not out anything if you don't count on it too much.  :)
