This is probably a result of fixing ticket #468.
Since your use case appear less common to me, 
this is unlikely to get fixed by default.
(We could change it for the "mono" case, but 
that would make it even more confusing imo.)

But I wonder how this should ever work in your 
specific case: FFmpeg would set all 16 channels 
as default, meaning that QuickTime would play 
both languages simultaneously...
