Yeah, personally I don't think this is worth it. It's a great set of API's, but I don't really know that it would help VLC in any tangible way from a performance standpoint, and you'd have to write all the fallback code, anyway, which means you're just maintaining stuff twice. VLC's got enough code as it is :)
