This whole thing is idiotic. How are client applications dealing with
transporting the AVCodecContext stream parameters over their layers?
Why didn't you write code to serialize the AVStream's AVCodecContext
into the first packet? Why do you hate your users (well those who need
it) this much? Are you a monster?

Your argumentation goes like this:
1. invent a mechanism that everyone WTFs at
2. claim that someone needs it
3. if someone removes it, pretend there is a problem because of
   imaginary people invented in 2
4. if you lose, accuse them of bad attitude etc.

Please stop.
