Do you have any indication that pcm in mpeg-ts is supported 
by any application?
If yes, the developers will seriously consider adding decoding 
(and possibly encoding) support to FFmpeg.

If FFmpeg supports encoding arbitrary codecs to (quite) 
special-purpose containers (as opposed to for example avi) that 
can certainly not be decoded by any other application, this 
leads to guaranteed trouble.

If you really know what you are doing, you will find that it is 
very simple to add support for arbitrary codecs to the mpeg-ts 
encoder and decoder.
