I am backing up the idea to use 5 of the spare 6 bits we have to be able 
to support h.264 in a neat way .... after all, if i am not mistaken we 
could ( in principal ) redefine the use of those 6 bits for other 
codecs, if really necessary ? Sure, its not the best way to go to make 
such specific definitions for every codec, but h.264 will be used for 
the next 4 - 6 years i guess, and then we have to think about matroska 2 
already ;) ....


BTW : why was this thread started in matroska-general instead of 
matroska-devel ?
