The only usefullness of this would be, if and only if i could pass options to 
a running mplayer. But I don't think switching resolution and output-device 
on the fly is possible. I don't see what this has to do with consistency. It 
simply break the usage of -identify. I mean, whoever done that may explain 
what the use of it is to have -identify output w/o beeing able to use it. The 
-vo null -ao null is just unneeded complication. Of course you can do 
whatever you want, and as a simple user i can just tell that  I  dislike it. 
The decission is after all up to you.
