Actually it was triggered by NTTW4.
(Thanks Michael for addressing this)

It should be noted though, that Michael also reminded me of "why it was 
v1 in the first place":

"The default is the lowest version which supports all the user selected 

Thats chosen so as to generate a file which is most widely supported.
(older bitstream versions work on older decoders, newer would only work 
on newer decoders)"

This should be known.
However, since I hardly see any reason to prefer v1 over v3 anymore, and 
considering that it's now the most widely one used, I'm happy to see it 
become default.

Any objections?

Kind regards,
Peter B.
