Or do you think Apple would be concerned it might eat into their Apple TV sales?

0%. From what I understand, Apple is considering licensing Airplay on devices that diversify the utility of Apple TV. You'll need to buy an Apple TV to have your device broadcast a signal that can eventually find its way to your TV and stereo system via Apple TV receiving that signal.

Wrong. AirPlay license currently allows companies like pioneer and denon to stream music from iTunes. No extra hardware needed. There are no video licensees right now. If there are in the future, then you won't need an appletv. Appletv sales don't bring apple enough revenue. It is the portable iOS devices and iTunes content ubiquity.

Considering Apple is anti-Blu-ray it is doubtful.

Well the reason they are anti bluray is because of the licensing stuff. I don't think they will be against this one if at all they license AirPlay video.
