I completely understand what you are saying, and I am fine with it. But…
It would be great if you guys put a wrapper around, at the very least, your Media and Upload Silverlight controls.
I am currently using the free Microsoft Silverlight Media Control (found in the same article you referenced) which can be used directly without the Silverlight container. I was hoping with your newest version of your Silverlight controls you would have continued to wrap your media control as you did in the previous version.
My rational is this… Why should I have to separate my code base for any 3rd party control I want to use? It only makes my code more difficult when I have to manage it across several projects. Besides it only makes these controls even more valuable if anyone could quickly add them to their legacy applications.
That is just my two cents.
I am a long time user, and even though I have evaluated all other controls suites, I find yours to not only the best (IMHO), but your service, as always, is above high class.
Give the wrapping a though.
