bitstream & decoding is normativ, encoding would be just one example
on how to generate a valid snow bitstream. Encoding is generally left
as non normativ in professional specs.

And id be happy to write such spec, but iam not able to accept money
from the current foundation. There have been too many controversies
around it, i dont want to be associated with it in its current form.
Maybe if the next vote isnt "tuned" and the next directors
represent the free software the foundation is supposed to represent
