As for limitation I just mean the fact that there are rawvideo pixel
formats which cannot be represented by an AVI tag, and they can be
added to nut extending its specification.

I thought that that mapping would be nut-specific, so I fail to see
why it should be implemented in

Also that would introduce the possibility for the AVI/QT muxer to use a
tag which is not valid for it, no?

That said, I really don't mind into putting these nut tag definitions
in ff_raw_pixelFormatTags, but that sounds odd/wrong to me.
