True, but this is also not meant as the rule, but as the exception of
the rule like I've written in my response to Steve.
mkvmerge leaves a lot more space after the seekhead so that you can
index several more additional level 1 elements without having to resort
to creating two linked seekheads. This space is really small compared to
leaving voids for e.g. tags, chapters or attachments. mkvmerge is a bit
generous here though: it reservers 4096 bytes for the seekhead and the
following void element even though that could be cut down to 256 bytes
or less for 99.9% of all cases.
