I think calling for a vote would make sense if people start commenting against it.
So far nobody did, but in any case there's time to discuss.

Keep in mind there are not many things, if any, in favor of the current decoder,
especially now that it stopped being faster. There's no maintainer for it working
on ffmpeg side of things, has less features, and the current developer on libav
is essentially taking bits from this one to catch up on features.

But by all means lets not have another prores or asf/wmv demuxer situation.
