I would like to remove support for AMR NB, fixed-point version.

The feature is non-essential, we have support for the floating-point

The support we currently have is extremely hackish, external source code
needs to be imported into FFmpeg.  For AMR NB floating-point version
there now exist proper libraries.  Removing support might motivate
somebody to do this for the fixed-point version as well.

Furthermore, the AMR libraries are non-free.  If they are imported into
FFmpeg, the resulting FFmpeg libraries and binaries are undistributable.
This is not something we should be encouraging.
