That I agree with, and for stuff that is actively maintained I will
likely keep deferring to the respective maintainers before I commit -
I've seen Mans and Janne doing similar things with stuff Kostya

I know you know much more about certain aspects of FFmpeg than me, and
you do a good job at maintaining them. I'd be an idiot not to ask for
your opinion.
