SilentPadding is not actually a very good name, since the data itself
may not, in fact, be silent. If you call it SilentPadding, players may
assume they can just play the data anyway without harm.
See http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/codec/current/msg02972.html for
some explicit recommendations to place things other than silence there.
