I'm assuming that the 3d acceleration isn't really needed for Video playback ?

We don't really need Ubuntu if it comes to XBMC. XBMC can be run on the framebuffer, so a very minimalistic rootfs such as busybox with the proper libraries and drivers is enough. XBMC would love to use the MALI for drawing the GUI, but indeed the video decoding has nothing to do with the MALI at all.

This is how the RPi and Raspbmc builds work, and is the way forward for ARM devices. Hence even other x86 system can work like that. OpenELEC is basically; Kernel,driver,busybox,libraries and XBMC
