It's for VIEWING and SHARING your library. (Management is of course easier handled on a computer screen--for photos and music alike. And contacts, calendars, notes...)
If you want to MANAGE your library with only an iPod, that's a cool idea maybe, but that's just not what the iPod Photo is for.
The iPod remains an output--not input--device. Limited input (voice, photos) is available via accessories.
How about on-the fly albums or other stuff?
iPods can do this type of stuff with audio, is the iPod Photo just a bone thrown to the "omg color screens are the end-all!"
If the belkin can't meld with the album system, basically you'd have your photos on the ipod, but there's nothing you can do with them until you find another computer to work with.
I think that's a reasonable complaint, as it sure as heck couldn't be that complicated to figure out a way to do it.
In addition, there are other devices that play video out right now! and they're the size of ipods too.
