(Not meaning to be rude at all.)
I think you could somewhat increase visibility of your problem simply
by posting about the issue in maillists, re-asking/upping the topic
time to time to show your interest.

Eelco, i've looked at your issue. My best wishes to you with it,
unfortunately personally i am not keen on Matroska internals and not
having enough time to investigate it in nearest time.
Regarding calculating reasonable bounty amount, i think it may be near
to amount of money (or cost of time) to solve the issue by yourself or
by your employees. This way you definitely mustn't be afraid to offend
anybody :)
