I guess it's OK as long as the Apple decoder really is faster than
FFmpeg with frame threading, and it supports all features a hw decoder
also would.

The whole point of hwaccel is to get a speed advantage over the
internal decoder.

Some mechanism to indicate that a sw decoder is used (even if it's
"better") would still be good.
