Yes, it's valid for m4a.

For audio formats, e.g. mp3, query codec returns MKTAG('A', 'P', 'I',
'C') to indicate that the image works only as attached picture.
But even for video formats, it would be nice if query codec can
properly tell which image formats it does based on disposition. The
codec list for cover images is different from generic video streams.
Any suggestions how to do that properly?
