I think it's better not to break what we have today. But we could mark
HD and non-HD with the codec private. It should be discarded by
existing players adn DTS decoders don't expect to be passed external
codec data. And it would be possible to spot which one are actually HD
without breaking anything. (non-HD ones will simply have no codec
private data set).
