This breaks much more things that it fixes.
Those files have at least one video or audio track which don't work anymore,
all for different reason:
I guess I could find more if needed.

It also breaks other features, such as metadata demuxing or various kind
of compressed tracks decoding...

This is much worse than the few small issues the lavf demuxer have.
Moreover, I'm working on fixing the lavf issues, while no one is trying
to fix the numerous issues of native demuxer (AFAIK).

Only possible conclusion => reverted.

This was one of the purpose of making lavf demuxer the default one:
giving it more testing. So far, it has worked well, since it has
uncovered a few issues that I fixed, or am in the process of fixing.
But it seems you just don't want the lavf demuxer to improve or become
the default one.
