But they're not needed for other uses. So it's useful if there is a way
to generate them if needed, but it's not necessary for every demuxer
stream to have DTS. It can also be useful to know what timestamp (or
other) information the container really specifies, and what is a guess
filled in by lavf (especially if the guess can be unreliable).
