Theres no problem with adding new values in avcodec.h, removing or changing
them is a problem, but i would suspect that is not planned.
The idea simply is that an application that uses libavcodec (and x264 throgh
libavcodec) keeps working with new libavcodec or x264 versions unless the
major version is bumped.
Adding values (which the old application doesnt know about) is no problem
redefining their meaning would be one though possibly not a huge one

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.
