As a constructive comment: if someone absolutely needs unofficial HEVC support,
I'd strongly suggest picking a value that is far from anything Adobe is likely to use.
I don't know what the max value possible to store is, but assuming it is a single byte, e.g. 218 (just picked out randomly) should be safer.
In addition all such files should be marked as non-standard in an easily recognizable way, e.g. by adding a special metadata tag.
