It is an intrinsic design requirement of the video filter 2 API that the input 
and output pictures of a format-preserving filter come from the same pool. 
This is of course a transitive requirement. So the distinction makes no sense 
in that case.

Distinguishing decoder and filter pool also makes no sense, since there can be 
any number of conversions in the pipeline - including zero in which case there 
is intrinsically only one pool.

So this proposal makes absolutely no sense to me. Nack.
