In principle I agree with you, also because I understood that the
led kind of bindings are for those LEDs which main function is to
emit light.

There is no need for a remote control directory, because there is
one already under bindings/media, where all the remote
controllers are placed.

Now this is a matter of interpretation, is this an IR LED used by
the driver as remote controller or is this a remote controller
with just an IR LED?

In any case, I will wait for you and Rob to agree where is best
to place the binding, then I will send a new version.
