I think you misunderstood David. I got the impression that David 
suggests using gstreamer for the backend of OMS not by stealing or 
forking, but through adoption and contribution. With that approach, some 
OMS developers will work on gstreamer itself, while others will work on 
porting OMS to be a gstreamer app for DVD playback. Other projects are 
facing the same decisions. For example, I am working in the 1394 space 
on componentizing features of the Kino video editor for reuse in 
gstreamer plugins and apps. I believe the MJPEG (lav) Tools project is 
in a similar situation.
