I'd love to send constructive comments, and even better, to state facts
against what you think about matroska.

Very unfortunately the only things i read about our container was that it
'sucks' , 'is overly complicated' , ' has crappy sepcs' and 'is not what you
need' . Its hard to reply with technical arguments against such statements,
would you agree ? If one of you could point us a bit more detailled where
you dont like our specs i will make sure that the matroska developers will
reply detailled why we made things the way we did them.

Again, Albeu's suggestions were golden for us, and most of his suggestions
led to matroska being what it is today. Note that he was critizing MCF specs
these days, not matroska specs. And yes, we find MCF specs also not really
perfect. At least we can judge about them, because we know them very well.

I am sorry Arpi, but i honestly have doubts here, at least with respect to
matroska. Since the specs were done i avoided to copy this list here asking
for input, for wellknown reasons.
