No, because you may choose a fourcc - for example RogP - that 
ffmpeg will happily write for your avi, but that will create 
more files that are unplayable with anything outside the 
FFmpeg / MPlayer universe, which we try to avoid.
Otoh, if you find an avi with qtrle in the wild, we will 
probably support it (and I agree with you, 
at least a warning would be fine).
