Well, for now, the only codec that would use it is ogg, so it seems sort
of overheady to me. You could just as well put the code in ogg(de)mux,
save up to two elements for a simple playback pipeline and thereby
decrease latency, no?

But if we don't care much about this, I guess this is a way. But please
do a better name.
