I support the idea, and would be willing to put up money towards the 
cause. It's one of the points I address in a talk I'll be giving about 
the future of FFmpeg next week (LinuxTag, Germany).

Like many great future directions for FFmpeg, this likely comes down to 
someone actually taking the initiative to set up the system. I think we 
already have the precedent for doing this kind of thing thanks to our 
involvement with Google Summer of Code.
