I haven't seen these in anything yet, but I admit I haven't looked 
all that deeply.

I know Matroska is capable of having multiple audio channels, and 
multiple video channels. Is there currently any way to create a 
scripting mixing board for them (this allows overriding, and can 
handle multiple scripts for multiple purposes), as well as 
hopefully a 3D sound positioning mechanism (again scriptable).

I'm thinking about something like a Karaoke situation, where 
storing both the background only and full audio versions would 
require nearly double the space of background only & speex 
compressed voice. Alternately a situational performance where for 
example in a Jazz combo at may be desirable to bring out the 
trumpet, but not lose the original data, allowing a great deal of 
flexibility in playback. With a suitable amplification/speaker 
environment it would be possible to do a great many very 
interesting things with this, and with live recordings the 
flexibility could open many more possibilities.

So my question is: Is there a positioning and mixing script 
facility available? And assuming there isn't, is there any other 
interest in seeing one?
