Ok, so what is your definition of a "standard"?

Do you really want to claim that Blu-Ray is not a standard?

Ehm... I have to decline to comment on this.

I understand your point of view. I just happen to see things
differently. If there's a TS file with a 0x80 track in it with the
"HDMV" registration descriptor then it's very clear that this is
a Blu-Ray style PCM track. I find it kind of stubborn to refuse
to handle such a track just because a Blu-Ray track doesn't
belong into a TS file in theory.

Yes, yes, I see that there are arguments for refusing to support
non-standard stuff. But still I prefer to simply make things
work instead of bickering about not following the standards
to the last letter.

We have different philosophies, obviously...
