I don't think that an access output should care about draining vs flushing. 
The access output is roughly the VLC equivalent of a file handle opened for  
writing. It should always "drain", never "flush".

In fact, even if the user pressed stop or exit buttons, the pipeline should 
still mux and write whatever was already queued to the stream output.
