I think its something to consider.

A Freedombox with HDMI out is one that can be
configured and used all on its own by people
who don't have any separate computer.   Even users
that do have a separate computer can still use
this feature when initially configuring the box.

Also, machines in this class aren't about to become
serious high-end "home media centers" or game consoles
anytime soon but... lo-fi?  At that price?   They'd
fly off the shelves.

There is that, yeah.

That's the question.   On the other hand, the more projects
that aim for something like this, I guess, the more likely 
some will hit.
