Playlists "intentionally" don't have demuxers, as they should probably
be handled in a more generic top-level way. As you said, this is
basically concatdec with parsing, which every playlist demuxer would
likely end up being.
Unfortunately, noone has yet finished any such API to handle this
properly, hence no playlist support in FFmpeg yet.
