That page includes "distribute the ffmpeg source code". IIRC that's *not* a
requirement for LGPL? There is no hidden insult, I am simply remarking a
legal page should clearly differentiate between what is a legal requirement
from the license, and what is considered polite.  If we start adding what
we *want* to what is mandatory, we end up confusing people.
