software on FC3, all using obsolete OSS i/f

I'm just wondering, I've got FC3 all updated to the latest and greatest
for mplayer, firefox (version1.0.6) but in my dmesg I keep seeing warnings:

application mplayer uses obsolete OSS audio interface
application firefox-bin uses obsolete OSS audio interface
application gmplayer uses obsolete OSS audio interface

shouldn't FC3 stuff I'm pulling off the official repositories be setup
to use ALSA instead of OSS ? BTW, I got realplayer to quit using
OSS by putting SoundDriver=2 into the .realplayerrc in the
[Helix] section

someone please correct me if i am wrong but FC has nothing to do with those messages. eash individual application is coded to use an audio interface. those were coded to use OSS instead of ALSA (it appears). oss doesnt even come with FC anymore so i believe all FC does is provide an interface that redirects OSS to your ALSA device, and then let's you know about it, hence the warnings.

this explaination is based on little specific information and a lot of assumption.. so i may be wrong

I am root. If you see me laughing you better have a backup.
