Don't get me wrong: My approach doesn't damage the file in any way. At
worst it will place an element somewhere it might not be found so easily
in certain situations (e.g. tags at the end of the file are not found if
the file is streamed and the streaming method doesn't support
seeking). But those disadvantages are present with the other proposed
methods as well.

Meaning: my worst case scenario is still 100% valid, and in situations
where random access to a file is available the content will be found by
demuxers that are implemented correctly.
