It's normally not enough to get a new container accepted by just putting 
some nice specs online. Believe me, i am speaking out of experience. 
Maybe if you are Apple, let's see.

We even had working code, and open, but people didn't like it because it 
was C++ instead of C. Today there are more than 6 different matroska 
libs, 3 of them in C and one even integer C ( our PalmOS and PocketPC 
support is based on it ). Still, support in most apps is coming along 
slow or is even non-existant. It's a long way to the top :D ....
