Not necessarily. If they are bundled the visitor can download the package
(meta+video) once and have it on their harddrive for later viewing. If
they come seperate the visitor will only download the SMIL file (meta),
but every time he wants to see the video he would open the SMIL file and
then redownload the video file.

It's not a problem if every visitor only views a video once, but more than
that it's extra bandwidth.
