Given that the feature request is a knee-jerk reaction[1] to one
Rhythmbox maintainer saying he sees the current code base as a dead-end
for a few use cases, I'm pretty happy to say I'd refuse the idea
point-blank.

As I explained to you in a reply to the accusatorial private email you sent me, this is clearly based on the technical superiority of Banshee. I have previously expressed an interest in proposing this.

Item 5:
Banshee as the default media player, with it´s aggressive development plan and responsive developers it seems to make a lot more sense to me as our default. It also presents much nicer bling and cooler features. I like that we can count on releases happening often with major improvements happening each time. E.g. in the pipeline now is things like rockbox integration meaning we might be able to offer users a way to convert a player to use only free software and free formats soon (something that seems like an issue for some due to codec patents).

Now will you please show your fellow Fedora contributors some common decency and respect.

It also seems the latest stable release crashes when playing videos on
my machine, and spits out loads of uncaught exceptions on startup.

FWIW, I've added my comments to:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Talk:Features/BansheeAsDefaultMediaplayer
and filed the two bugs I found whilst starting up Banshee:

I will reply to these as soon as possible

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=487117
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=487120

Thank you for your bugreports, as you will have noticed I have already started working on them.
