I didn't want to add more functions to the API if they weren't necessary.
This function is really a patch over bad values coming from lavf/not matching the decoder well, so improving the initial values might remove the need for it.
Even if not, I think clients should see a good-enough-for-playback timestamp value come out of ffmpeg libraries by default without having to call more functions, so lavc could call this and put it in AVFrame. Then it would still be an internal library function, so it could move again out of here at some point.
