I'm not fan of the duplicated loop-ups either.

The existing users are not updated to cater for the num_planes != 0
case... Which seems non-existent scenario since all the current format
descriptions have 1+ planes.
Should we add a test (alike the ones in 6/20) to ensure, that no entry
has 0 planes? Is it even worth it or I'm a bit too paranoid?

The above comments apply to 2/20.

With the name suggestions by Paul, patches 1 to 5 (incl.) are:
