I think so, there is lot of things which FFmpeg doesn't handle afaik:

audio/video output, streaming output (although some people are working
on it i think - i never tried ffserver -), playlist, windows threads
etc.. but you should know better than me

Also in the unprobable event ffmpeg replaces libvlc, that still doesn't
make ffmpeg an application on the player side.
