There is no consensus for that.

Can you explain why you believe it makes any kind of sense to remove
widely used APIs like FF_API_PIX_FMT/FF_API_AVCODEC_FRAME, while
keeping completely useless ones like FF_API_MISSING_SAMPLE?

I think it would be much more reasonable to keep the two I suggested,
and instead remove most of those you intend to keep, because they are
hardly used anywhere.

Best regards,
Andreas
