IMHO putting non-related files into the video dir is like putting
non-related files into an IMAP folder and expecting the IMAP daemon to
work around it.
*nix is so flexible when it comes to mounting and linking of partitions
and directories I don't see a need to put mp3 files and alike into the
video dir - and all plugins allow you to configure separate directories
for their needs...
So why add more complexity to a working system?

Just my thoughts though...
