One of the problems is that we need to force main and overlay formats
to be the same. A possible way would be to set the format as a
parameter (e.g. overlay=x:y:format=yuva422p), in this case you have:

or we'll need to perform all the kind of sub/upsampling which really
don't belong to lavfi, and we only provide support to yuva420p, so at
first we should extend swscale to support more YUV alpha formats.
