Nevermind, I was confused. Even in libffmpeg-devel didn't require
those packages the dependency would still exists through the real
libraries (libffmpeg-devel->libavcodec52->libx264-114), so a x264
change would trigger a ffmpeg-dependent package rebuild anyway.
I would still remove them since they aren't really needed and a few
still create extra dependencies (since aren't reflected in the real
libs), but it would not be a major change :-(
