>From the spec, it seems that a sample rate of 7350Hz (sampling_index
== 12) is not supported in AAC. At least, none of the above mentioned
tables contain entries for 7350Hz, only for 8kHz and above. In which
case, I consider the checks valid.

However, while parse_adts_frame_header() is tied to AAC at the moment,
maybe in future we'll support the CELP part of the spec too. As such
I'm moving the check to just after parse_adts_frame_header() is called
as it isn't the value that is wrong in the header, it's that we don't
support the formats in the spec that require that sampling_index.

Thanks for the patch. Applied.
