EBML permits that and updating the code in 2 minutes (longest is to 
compile, make a new release and upload it). That's what may be missing 
in OGG (extending with this kind of thing). Maybe you can add it out of 
the granulepos, which is how I would like things to be. But I doubt it.

Unlike OGG we don't need to stream everything. So only time based 
information (SMPTE is too) is worth for us.
