I guess what is file size overhead here, comparing to plain MPEG or OGG or even AVI

In other words, each packet is having non-relative timecode, which is again longer than relative timecode with shorter value?
Or if it is relative - then application seems to meet almost the same troubles.

If i got it, in MKV timestamps are relative to upper EBML block, so within one block, all sub-blocks might be taken as they were absolutely stamped, but will this upper-level block be damaged, then all sub-blocks inside will lost its timestamps (read: sync) ?

So in desync is not eliminated, it is just more varied in severity of damage after the random place, where the file was corrupt.
