Most because e.g. some *conatiners* need this info. No containers, to my
knowledge, need this 'lossless' info.

The decoders definitely *do not* need this lossless info. It's workaround
for a purely cosmetic problem with assumptions a CLI tool used to make.

IMO the correct 'fix' is to add it back to st->codec like others suggested,
for the time being.
