I suggest not taking much care of this for the moment. Let's handle the
simple/common/free codecs first. AAC is good only for low bitrates, and can
probably be equal to Vorbis in this field. And AAC is full of patents.

Let's just have the Low and Main profile IDs defined (hopefully the MP2 and MP4
versions are similar) for the moment. It won't be coded anytime soon...
