The dropping of support of XvMC, and discussion of dropping of Xv, were 
resulting from the rewrite of much of the playback display code for 
0.24, in combination with the OSD.  It was an issue at the forefront, as 
continued support would require a significant amount of additional code 
to be written.

While many developers think framegrabber support should be dropped, and 
NuppelVideo support replaced by mkv or something more else mainstream, 
it's really not hurting anything.  Framegrabber support will probably be 
dropped the first time it needs significant maintenance, or if support 
of it will result in additional work to add a new feature.  Replacing 
NuppelVideo would actually require significant additional work, on a 
feature that is rarely used among the developers anyway.
