No, I am very much against this.
And others have also voiced against that.

Also, I don't see a problem with including this AMD header. It very much 
increases the accessibility and maintainability(no need to watch out for 
potential breaking upstream changes, however likely that might be).
Having those vendor-specific hwaccels enabled in otherwise generic 
builds gives a lot of people easy access, or access at all.

It also might make them potential usage candidates for browsers, no idea 
how their weird lawyer-code-review system works though, and if it has 
any impact to avoid external dependencies.
