The specs on the matroska.org homepage are fully up to date, so the 
codec ID list there is complete.
The codec list on the forum comprises some more, like XviD or the like, 
because they are stored in VFW compatibility mode 'V_MS/VFW/FOURCC' . 
For a developer implementing matroska support into his app, its 
irrelevant to add codec specific support for these.

For more delicate questions, either robux4, Mosu or Haali would have to 
help you, as i am not a dev myself.
