I think having that displayed at least for a tiny bit isn't that bad. I think
that it's good sometimes to have an indicator of where you are, if it doesn't
severely detract from the use of the device. It's good for people who don't
know the device very well.

Another one that I think should stay. The player icon being there means that
you're in a menu while playing something. I think it gives more information
about the status of the device, which is never a bad thing.
