It means that all hardware acceleration code reuses an ancient code path built for XVMC (which only supports MPEG-2) and nobody bothered to update that message so far.
I am answering because the same message appears with VDPAU, which in contrast to VAAPI made its way into mainline MPlayer (and is partially supported for ATI via its OpenSource drivers).
