Anything that is compatible with the Apple dock connector standard will be subject to the whims of Apple. They will demand a license agreement faster than you can log in to iTunes. They relentlessly pursue it, simply poke around on the internet to see proof.
I think there's a possible caption to that Steve Jobs "halo" picture. It's not a religious one as you may think. I'll bet he's thinking of that new custom Gulfstream jet he now envisions for his collection.

This reminds me of the flamboyent Liberace . . .
He used to love showing off his mink coats, gaudy rings and baubles to his audience at his live performances. He'd ask, "Do you like it? You should . . . you bought it!"

You should visit the Off Typic section here and the discussion Am I the only one here who doesn't like Ipod?
You'd find many people who agree.
And I also think that Apple wouldn't allow anyone to have another player connec to the iPood's connector, yes that monopoly issue they seem to have. One former Fuze owner , who didn't want to be bothered with anything more then "on/off" on their player and didn't like that there wasn't any accessories for Fuze went to an iPood. I'm not suggesting that at all. check out the Accessories For the Fuze - link here.
The Accessories section for more ideas.

It's a money thing. Why build a universally used plug when you can make the accessories specific to your product?
I have a feeling that the 3.5mm headphone jack has the possibility to solve all of (y)our problems...!
Then again, having accessories catered to EVERY sound system/mp3 (virtually every handheld music device out there) would be a smart biz move.
Hai Sandisk! Nice to have such a supportive company behind me and my products!
