If you wish for comments on your changes, you can post a patch here that
conforms to our devel policy&... (nicely split in 1 patch per self contained
change ...)
That said, not breaking compilation is part of the guidelines

thats a pointless rename, that certainly doesnt improve readability, not even
for you.

as said, you can post a patch if you like and are willing to subject your
code to peer review and comments of other developers, if not its your perfect
right of course to fork ffmpeg, sit in a corner with your fingers in your ears
and chanting "my code is more readable"
