"Accelerated" maybe not (though you lose brightness and contrast adjustment as well), but (unless -vo x11 could be modified to support grayscale directly) you must convert it to RGB. Converting to RGB mean reading the Y8 data, writing the RGB data and then giving the RGB data to the X-Server. Depending on RGB format, that would mean 5x - 9x the memory bandwidth requirement - if nothing else that is quite a power waste, even if your memory is fast enough to handle it (if the video is small enough it should fit in cache and it wouldn't be a real issue).
