I think there should be provisions for seeking so we do not need to break the interface later. It should not be hard to have 4 callbacks (open, close, read, seek) like glibc fopencookie(). If the seek callback is NULL, then CANSEEK will be false.
Support for demux is a totally different thing IMHO. No need to tie both.
Note that I have yet to review the patch. Those were only general comments.

This patch is a strawman proposal to add an API for imem access
The patch is tested and working, but is limited in scope to using
imem for access, and not (yet) for demux.
I wanted some early feedback to see if a) it's on the right track,
or not; b) get some input on what the API should be like (e.g.
should demux also be exposed, should it be the same or separate
API etc); and c) see if people think it's actually useful or not.
To be honest I am sceptical about the general usefulness since
seeking is not supported by imem, and people who ask about this
often say they need seeking too - but here it is anyway...
