null muxer lacks AVFMT_TS_NONSTRICT; prints often-unnecessary error

Description

The libavformat null muxer doesn't have the flag AVFMT_TS_NONSTRICT. This is desirable if you want to use the muxer to test for strict-timestamping issues, but you don't always want to do that. It already has AVFMT_NOTIMESTAMPS, which should probably imply AVFMT_TS_NONSTRICT; perhaps we should have a lavf option to forcibly enable that warning if it's desired?

Wasn't this already discussed on the developer mailing list?

Apparently it was, but no conclusion was reached: https://ffmpeg.org/pipermail/ffmpeg-devel/2014-August/161657.html
