We'd like to enable the av1 video codec in nightly for experimental testing. This is a tracking bug for relevant issues.

Lits have contacted me directly stating on how much of a bad idea that was. It would only encourage people to create file with non stable version of the library. And that those files would haunt us forever.

Ffmpeg folks almost unanimously expressed their concerns on the matter.
We also have made no assessment on the safety of libaom

It's a nightly-only experiment, and there's a way for web authors to verify bitstream version. I think that's fine; we're not putting this into release yet.

Safety is a good point. I'll file a test plan.
