If not lyx do you propose another format? Texinfo?

Also some of the recent commits related to ffv1 also pertain for the specification. Rather than drafting the ffv1 specification within the current github space at https://github.com/FFmpeg/FFV1, would it make more sense to develop ffv1's specification within the libav/ffmpeg projects themselves (such as in http://git.libav.org/?p=libav.git;a=tree;f=doc and http://git.videolan.org/?p=ffmpeg.git;a=tree;f=doc)?
