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

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.
