Yes, from an archiving standpoint, any data that uses proprietary encoding means you have to put effort into aging the content to guard against it becoming stuck in time. So long as those encodings are constantly being migrated to new versions of the same encoding (which should be as simple as opening and resaving in the current version of FCP), you're OK. But at the point when you consider migrating out of the Apple universe is when you'll need to figure out how to reencode all of that content. You might look at, and keep track of libavcodec and FFmpeg projects to see if it meets your requirements.
