Is there some real indication that this may happen or is it just your
gut feeling that tells you? Is there any quotable conversation? Diego?

You'd probably have no other choice if there were no more ffmpeg
packages allowed in Debian. ;)
But seriously, maybe this would even help us (as debimedia), since we
could build the exact same ffmpeg package for debimedia and ubuntu. It
would just be a pity for all the other packages in Debian/main that
currently benefit from libavcodec.
My favourite solution would be the introduction of another software
section in Debian to contain potentially dangerous packages. Similar
to what non-us has been in pre-sarge times...
