I believe several developers have argued in the past that they are against
adding libxml2 as an external dependency to FFmpeg.
Instead of resending this (or a similar) patch once more, I believe you
first have to argue why you disagree.

Iirc, it was said that a simple (and very incomplete) xml "parser" would
also allow to demux dash.

PS: I completely agree with autodetection if xml2 should be added.
