Seems nice to me. At least much nicer than it is currently.

IMO in the long term bytestream should be modified to be more like
bitstream stuff, i.e. having a context with a start, current and end
pointer, with (optional) bounds checking etc.
But even as it is some code duplication can be avoided by implementing
AV_<L|B><R|W><2|4|8> and simply reusing that in bytestream.
