This could work for Mythfrontend, but you have to remember there are a
lot of other programs that will use the data. Nuvexport, videolan,
mplayer, etc.  If we don't have a fully valid video stream, other
programs will suffer and I think we should work towards being compatible
and universal rather than unique.
