Do you mean that we'll have to wait til Mageia4 ?

there's vo-aacenc which is an opensource project to replace faac ...
(the last version was published in february 2012)
but it is still less complete and good than faac, and needs to be improved.
When it is OK... then, that will need to modify the source code of
mplayer, gstreamer, mythtv, vlc, xine, cinerella to build them upon it
(to port them from faac to vo-aacenc)

ffmpeg seems to have been already modified to use libvo-aacenc

Nevertheless, until it's done and good there's no solution to work on
mp4 or mpa or aac files with Mageia2 ... and certainly  won't either
with Mageia3 ... people who need that will go elsewhere.
