Sending a mail to this list is probably the best way to make it public. 
We can add it on matroska.org and Haali can add it to his own page. 
Matroska.org being the reference anyway.

Given the S_KATE name, I assume it's a subtitle codec ? Otherwise for 
audio it should start with A_ and for video with V_.
