iam too tired but my gut feeling says this is not so good as it somehow
messes up input vs output semantics. (that is IIRC this field really describes
the coded bitstream not the decoded output or inpt in case of a encoder.
also set by libavcodec and set by user is a recipe for problems

Frequently ignored awnser#1 FFmpeg bugs should be sent to our bugtracker. User
questions about the command line tools should be sent to the ffmpeg-user ML.
And questions about how to use libav* should be sent to the libav-user ML.
