demux: provide fallback for pause, PTS delay and pace control

Many existing demuxers do not use the generic control helper providing
those control queries. But as we now need to support those queries for
manifest-based or asynchronous demuxers, this fallback becomes

We could also just do ahead and implement the controls in all demuxers.
Help yourself.
