  Sure, go ahead. Listing reasons why individual links got removed
like you did above in the commit message would probably be a good
idea. And posting that later in a news article would maybe help
projects that still exist and work with current MPlayer to notice
and tell us there new sites/names. Don't take this so serious, I am
just thinking out loud...

Big thanks for looking through those web pages,
