Umm .. no. I don't see why they are needed. Its just an extra layer of
gratuitious confusing indirection. The rest of the world speaks and
understands FourCC sp for all the formats covered by an existing FourCC

You might need to check one now and then but everyone doing video
processing is familiar with them including all the Windows folk.
