What a short-sighted comment. I really respect you, but this comment 
really misses the mark I think. Not every iOS device is a phone, and 
even these can get rather large these days. And don't you need to render 
controls? You don't think rendering video's embedded in a larger 
application is ever needed in for example a simple video editor (for 
which a device like the iPad Air 2 is perfectly suitable in terms of 
processing power)?

IMHO, it is not up for framework developers to decide that user won't 
need this kind of capability. It does need to be there, so application 
developers can be creative in how they use video playback.
