A few notes:
* Having different codecs in the same file is rather hard to
  handle, and I'd avoid it if possible, same for different
  resolutions.
* Breaking old apps is a big no-no.

In light of all this, Mosu's idea looks better. And it allows
different codecs and resolutions if at some later stage we
might want this (normal track info will be filled in that case).

So, the only addition to the spec will be a new TrackType, and
some way to tell the parser in what parts of file what additional
tracks are available, like adding a list of tracks to the cluster
header, or to the chapter.
