Why not install only ffdshow and, if needed, manually register any splitters you might need?

I do, I've had this Windows 7 install since January and haven't found anything I have needed to install a codec pack for yet.

I agree!

I also wonder about these codecs. Why and/or when are they needed?

Since Win 7 came out Oct 2009, I have never encountered any audio issue with audio/visual files.

Depending on the player you use, you can run almost anything without codec's and codecs can cause all sorts of problems.
