Not really.  CentOS can still rebuild the whole distro, without the mp3
plugin, or choose to enter into a distributor's agreement with Fluendo,
and ship with the mp3 plugin.

Also, when was the last time that in a traditional closed software offer
you could see the source, make changes to it, submit the changes, and
get legal use out of your changes by using the next version of the
binary that gets released ?

You're trying to paint it a lot more black and white than it is, I
think.
