Personally, I use avformat demuxing with a bunch of other decoders
which might still need the parser to run first to re-package frames on
proper boundaries, so having the decoders do that instead of the
demuxers sounds like the wrong approach to me.
A demuxer should ideally output fully re-constructed packages, and not
a raw bitstream that still needs re-construction before decoding, at
least IMHO.
