I also think it's better (I know I'm biased because it would
solve/simplify my issue), but I'm not motivated to remove it from lavfi

I can't say for the video, but concerning audio I think it's a good thing
to have a distinction here. :)

OK good, the patch will be updated to drop that feature then.
