no, 32bit fourcc is used since ages and it didnt need such mess until you
just invented it here to support your suggestion,

normal fourcc/32bit:
mp3  mp3
m4v  mpeg4
theo theora
vrbs vorbis

variable vs 32bit length is completely independant from intentionally 
choosing silly codec names, the variable length system can also be made 
to look bad by giving each a random number as name

In the past you could go to a library and read, borrow or copy any book
Today you'd get arrested for mere telling someone where the library is
