gst-openmax is not used on any major desktop distributions, it's mostly meant
for embedded systems where codec vendors provide OpenMAX IL implementations. If
you install gst-openmax on your desktop it's probably for testing purposes so
you must know what you are doing and therefore only load the plugin when you
want to test it.

If the priority is SECONDARY, then you will not be able to test the elements.

In any case, I'm decreasing the priority because ogg vorbis has never worked
that well with bellagio and gst-openmax upstream uses it by default.
