That simply means that you don't need the 3ivX codec, because for example ffdshow is also able to decode the video.

The DivX and Xvid decoders can also decode video encoded by 3ivX. It may be needed to change the FourCC. But it is very well possible that they are able to recognize the FourCCs used by 3ivX, when turning on their respective "Generic MPEG-4" decoding options.
I don't think so, or at least I never saw this happeninig. Nor DivX neither XviD don't decode 3ivX or VP codecs. The other way, yes, VP and 3ivX do decode DivX and XviD. As far as I know, DivX and XviD are more like a "home user" codecs while the others are profesional ones.
