There's another entry button of the media play in the customized toolbar
set. So I think this would also not work based on the context?

This would be perfectly acceptable in my personal opinion. We don't actually
know who will use the stand-alone player in other apps rather than impress, I
mean it depends on the end users' personal favour and habits.  So IMHO, we
should be cautious to *totally* take out an existing feature.

Michael? What about your opinion of this?
