This is somehow subjective, and I'm not saying this has not issues as
FFmpeg has small control on how Libav is doing development, but
changes in Libav are still merged in FFmpeg so in a way that *is*
contributing to FFmpeg.

That's not true, FFmtech tax-exemption application to IRS is still
pending and we had no official comunication of approval/rejection yet.
