Yes, of course! That's why I added the "although that would be pleasing", on account of the joking!
Please to not be taking offense!
My comment was meant to imply dropping the inlaid controls, just adding a different controller for those so inclined. They do with DVD Player.
A preference for either "old school" controllers (unlikely; Apple usually doesn't hang back on this kind of UI change) or a floating controller ala DVD Player are possibilities, but I wouldn't hold my breath. Just seems like a lot of complexity just to keep transport controls off the screen for a second. Although, if they did do it, it might be cool to do "tear off" controls that could be dragged from the video window to wherever.
As far as Apple dictating my viewing options, they already do that by obliging me to watch non-full screen video in a heavy little player frame-- or, if I use Quick Look, with persistent transport controls.
I guess it would be nice if Apple offered every possible UI choice at every junction, but we know that's not going to happen.
