There are no dependencies between the VCE and specific 3D hardware, so there's no problem.

The "return-on-investment" (time- and money-wise) probably isn't very good for things for the radeon driver, and I'd rather they do things that prevent lay-offs of workers or even create new jobs, I think that's more important and wish others would consider that before complaining about something with the radeon driver.
