In a rash decision, the next version mpv will use a incorrect non-compliant default config location, that can bring confusion to new users and deprecate a lot of unofficial documentation and Arch Wiki.

Currently there is an effort to revert this commit, but with no avail until now: If this commit is not reversed, the wise thing to do is patch downstream and make mpv use XDG_CONFIG_HOME again.
