You might want to point the list at the updated documentation for maemo. M5
has includes pulseaudio and appears to have a bit more detailed diagrams.

http://wiki.maemo.org/Documentation/Maemo_5_Developer_Guide/Architecture/Multimedia_Domain

I can't comment on the rest of the references since I'm not really a
multimedia guy (one media is good enough for me! har har har!), but has
nothing really changed sinec 2003 in kernel space? Or since gstreamer 10.0
in userspace? From a somewhat-in-touch (I hope) user point of view, there
has been a lot of effort going on here -- dumping of esd, development of
pulseaudio, "stabilization" of ffmpeg.
