>From MPlayer docs:

              Only useful with MEncoder.  Softskip moves the frame skipping (dropping) step of en‐
              coding from before the filter chain to some point during the filter chain.  This al‐
              lows filters which need to see all frames  (inverse  telecine,  temporal  denoising,
              etc.)  to  function  properly.  Should be placed after the filters which need to see
              all frames and before any subsequent filters that are CPU-intensive.

Again I have no idea what this filter may be good for in FFmpeg, thus
I don't object against its removal.
