I re-read the previous discussion on fourcc's and I don't want to restart it 
or anything if the main nut devs agree on sticking to four bytes, but what 
is the reason for not using a wider field? I agree that all sorts of 
implementation specific names should be avoided, but I always found 
fourcc's rather limited. Examples are 'drac' and 'vrbs' where 'dirac' and 
'vorbis' are a lot clearer.


+4,"mp2 "	MP3
+4,"mp3 "	MP2



+    identification for the codec, must comply to fourcc.txt

I would write "MUST comply" to emphasize that non-complying strings should 
be rejected by the muxer.
