alternative suggestion:

    identification for the codec 
    MUST be <=4 bytes long
    SHOULD be made of alphanumerical chars
    the exact values are outside of the scope this spec
    if a codec specifies a prefered identifer which fits within the
    constraints of this syntax element then it SHOULD be used, if a codec
    is commonly using a identifer which fits within the constraints of this
    syntax element in another container format then that identifer SHOULD be
    if there are several possible values to choose from then the one used
    in the source file if any SHOULD be prefered, if there are still several
    options left then the one with the most descriptive name SHOULD be
