I think I would be more accepting of this direction if App developers were putting their own nav options in the app and hiding these until you do something that makes them show again. The video player apps that hide them are reasonable compromises and other apps could do something. A game could have a certain menu option to turn them back on or even just a non control area of the gameplay to touch that would reshow them and pause the game.
As it stands with very few apps using them well though I would rather not have them also.
