All the files are still readable by a (sane) version 2 reader.
Any reader behaving according to spec should just skip unknown elements, so
new elements don't necessarily increase the read version.
Opus would still play, just possibly with minor audio sync issues, and
possible corrupted audio output at start/end and after seeks (the pre-roll
and end padding)
