First of all, let me thow my hat into the 'this is a good idea' ring.

Now the caveat:

For me, it would not be a complete and permanent re-mapping of the buttons
that I would want, but something temporary I could load in for specific
reasons. Example: I do take my Player jogging, and would love to have a
single button press for volume up and down during this time. For other
times, the 'standard' mappings are great. So I., for one, would not desire
any complex duration/state dependant re-mapping commands; just a (number) of
simple remappings I could load for specific occasions. Of course, others
may require more complex functionality, but I would imagine this feature
would be for 'instant gratification' in application to various operations;
recording; volume; in-car use; applications where more complex menu hunting
may be problematic.

Just my thought on the matter.
