Can it be extended  to work with mjpeg, DNxHD, I-frames only mpeg2 , ffv1, and 
alikes ?

DNxHD support is included in stable version 0.5 of FFmpeg, released on March 10, 
2009.[9][10] This allows Linux non-linear video editors Cinelerra and Kdenlive 
to use DNxHD.

I personally never used  workflow with reencoded source videos  due to extreme 
lack of free space, but at least old versions of Cinelerra  often had no option 
but to run on reencoded material, and having no hdd space for video editing is 
more like deviation, not norm ....
