Do you intend to do a release in the next few days? If not, this seems
to miss the point IMO.
It may indeed be the better choice to revert the default again, but only
Aurelien can guess his timeline of fixing the existing problems, thus such
a change should take his plans into account.
Or am I the only one who thinks that switching default demuxers twice a week
(each time a bug is fixed or a new one uncovered) would be the worst outcome
for the users (after all they can use -demuxer mkv, causing confusion seems
much worse to me)?
